Comes down to this - I've started events at the age of 39(!). My FS is an I Intense tracer, lots of money spent, predictable AM build set to 140 travel, nice bike, 30lb. Too heavy and industrious for eventing right?
Should I (gulp, can I?) commit to selling off the tracer in favor of a more "generic" slightly lighter 120mm bike ('dale RZ120, Trek EX, Yeti ASR) to cover the events AND my general weekly singletrack + 4-5 Trail centre visits per year?
Or as the Tracer has "trail" rather than "wallow" characteristics/geometry anyway, should I shut up and put up?
Opinions please, to help an indecisive cretin....?
