The Mountain Bike is, as implied, a mountain bike featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Mountain Bike is one of three bicycles in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, designed more for speed and power rather than nimbleness and ability to execute bicycle tricks.

The Mountain Bike is distinguished from the two other bicycles, the Bike and the BMX, by its size and the rugged tires, since it is designed to travel across uneven terrain.


Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Mountain Bike is the most capable in hill climbing; even if an incline is significantly steep, due to the fact that it has multiple gears (while other bikes only have one). The player can tap the acceleration command while on a Mountain Bike and climb its slope with less effort than other bicycles.

As mentioned, the Mountain Bike is less tailored for stunting, and only allows Carl to execute moderately high bunny hops.

Special Variants

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • A unique black mountain bike appears in the mission House Party. This bike only appears in the cutscene. The player is, however, still able to obtain this one-of-a-kind mountain bike by inputting "Black Cars Cheat", and it will spawn in a black color if found by Carl.

  • The Mountain Bike has a glitch that only works in the original PlayStation 2 version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. While reversing, rapidly tap the accelerate button (normally X), and CJ's body will twist ridiculously out of proportion. Releasing the square button and keep tapping X will make the player ride normally with a glitched CJ. The "glitch" duration, however will depend on how much time you spent doing the actual glitch, as CJ will slowly revert back to normal.
    • Attempting this glitch in the PC version will rarely get CJ glitched, but in a different way. Some body parts (such as arms, legs or head) will turn invisible. This has no effect in gameplay, however.
  • Attempting to fire a RPG at the bike and blowing it up will result in the player catching on fire. Similarly, attempting to do the same with a Hydra will result in the aircraft being damaged and blown up. This also applies to the BMX and the Bike.
