I own a Marin Rocky Ridge and a Santa Cruz Blur. Neither are spring chickens, but are in pretty good shape. I've recently had a few months off the bike with a broken scapula, so my fitness, which was never brilliant, is absolutely crap now. So now, when I try to make the 30 minutes climb behind my house on my Blur, it is sooooo much difficult than on my hardtail.
Does this mean something is wrong with my Blur, or is this to be expected? I keep thinking that there must be something wrong with the RP3 on my Blur - no matter much much air I put in it, it is still a much more mammoth task to climb up that hill than on the HT.
What do y'all think?
