About Me

Started Mountain Biking in 1990. Did some amateur races back in the day before suspension. Took about 15 years off while playing Rugby and working on career. Got back into it in 2015. Guess you can't teach an old dog new tricks, b/c I've tried suspension bikes but still prefer my hardtail!! Favorite part of mountain biking for me is going as fast as possible through the woods, whether that's on the flat, rollercoasters or downhill- I just love to bomb it!!

That's pretty deep and more than just a puddle- so Kudos to you for taking it on- although as Jeff Barber points out- watch out for water in rims.  My advice is...

replied to Climbing struggles!
<p style="text-align: center;">Im no expert but i think you have the wrong bike for climbing. That bike's geometry, suspension and gearing is built to maximize dowhills, not uphills. It's always gonna suck...
