- When one goes back to a hardtail after a couple of years only on full-sus…
Might one recommend tubeless tyres for Sir’s build? One found oneself in a similar position and it would appear that this helps somewhat (certainly whilst one remembers how to ‘ride light-er’)! Oh – and pick decent lines, ride your fork and so on and so forth… which you knew already 🙂
Bloody good fun though isn’t it?!Posted 4 years agobig_scot_nannySubscriber
… don’t go crashing into rock gardens with your rear tyre at “maximum traction with rear sus” low-pressure, unless you like truing nicely buckled wheels and fixing pinch flats. 😳
Bugger, it is confirmed that I have forgotten how to “ride light”, but also that a reasonably hardcore hardtail really is rather good fun (if a bit more speed limiting than a full bounce machine).
S’all bikes though innit? All good. 😀
Re. t’other thread on the perfect bike, i don’t think that is possible to have “one”, but with a cross bike for commutes, the NP mega with coils for alps and bike park days, and the 29er hard tail with a dropper, its pretty close.
Now, if only I could get that bloody fat bike niggle out of my head! 😈Posted 4 years agobig_scot_nannySubscriber
This mornings revelation – bending the knees on landing can really help. 😛
Amazing how lazy I have got at using my body. 😳
Hardtail = lovely in singletracky woods. tubeless – tried it once, almost had a heart attack with the track pump, failed, cannot be arsed to go back. 😀 Maybe a 2.2 racing ralph is a bad choice of rear tire…
