I started trail riding five years ago at the young age of 40. My goal is to keep it up through and after retirement. Fortunately I will be retiring relatively early, 55 at the latest, as soon as 50 if things work out positively. While perhaps lofty, my goal is to be 'faster' when I…

commented on Over a Beer: Riding to Live
 
Even when feeling exhausted before hitting dirt, a few miles on the trail snaps me out of it. I really do come to life so to speak. Long ago I used to worry I might be too tired to ride. I now know I'm only too tired NOT to.

Love my GloWorm X1 and X2. Shame they didn't make it into the comparison. They are superbright, tiny, have solid construction, and the heads themselves aren't too expensive. Admittedly, their battery packs are overpriced, but you can pick up quality panasonic cell packs for cheap to run them.

replied to Improved my biking!
 
Improved physical condition always helps and just with riding faster.  Tech skills also waver when your body (and mind) is struggling so being in better physical shape also helps you pick a better line, balance an obstacle better, land a drop cleaner, etc. I go to the gym to play racquetball.  When I increase my frequency of one…

'Either/or' never works out well.  Got to find the way to both and lesser.   Smaller water feature, lower gruppo line?

Interesting.  I'm a noisy hub vs bell guy though.

replied to 1x12 Is Coming
 
Been using 1x10 for 1.5 years.  Came from a 2x9 prior.  Like most, I avoided shifting chainrings unless an absolute last resort.   Narrow-wide and clutch is the bomb.  I went from dropping chains every 3-4 rides to NEVER in 100 or more rides.  Also have more room for extra lights or battery on handlebar if needed with…
