  • Anyone seriously 'overbiked'?
  • It’s that simple – can’t understand why people need to overthink stuff so much

    I find people overthinking harmless questions to come up with smart arsed answers a bigger problem round here to be honest 😉

    Did the summer trailquest series on a ridgid scandal this year. Was supprised how relativly easily your could bike in the peak with no suspension, though royce clough had me blinking the third eye when i was carrying to much speed.
    Wont be getting rid of the 5 spot with 150 36’s yet..

    Overbiked, yes.

    Care, no 🙂 if I’m really worried I can swap tyres, drop fork travel, and raise the seatpost, for less gnar.

    over the years indeed, 160mm travel bikes liked them all, some like turner rfx original version titus supermoto climbed better than some xc bikes I have owned…..the titus over a 10mile circuit was quicker than my yeti asr sl……faster and safer on the downs so made up loads of time.

    These bikes allowed me to ride with a knackered back when a hartail would have meant giving up

    ridden up col de perysoude/port de bales/superbargnes on a Maverick ml8…all good fun

    enjoyed them all now on a 120/95 mm 29er and still overbiked 😀

    Ride and enjoy

    I keep selling 140/150mm travel bikes and buying something shorter but keep ending up with a 140mm bike again, just put a 150mm for on my stumpjumper so definitely over biked again but won’t be following the urge for a 120mm bike as it won’t be any lighter

    never happy

    Absolutely
    An Orange Five SE and I keep both wheels on the floor mincing round the downs. A hard tail would be more than enough but I don’t care
