Around 20 years ago Chipps discharged a series of words from his brain and came up with this. And you know what? It is still as true as it ever was. Bikes may have got a lot more bouncy, and brake’y, and Bluetooth’y, and hoverbike’y (I have future-proofed this blurb ready for the next big tech to hit bikes) but we still do the same thing, in the same place, for the same reasons.
“Singletrack: A meandering, narrow slice of heaven, a beckoning angel, a rightful absolution from the stresses of teh day, a battleground for the friendly rivalries, a test of tyre contact patch adhesion, a skerf of dust kicked up on a corner, the justification for buying an expensive bike, the reason for keeping a cheap bike, a dance on the pedals, a stifled smirk, an ear to ear grin, a “don’t look at that tree” moment. a qualifier for pies, beer and cake. The reason for dragging yourself out of bed on a wet Sunday morning in February, in order to earn a perfect summers day in return”.
I would suggest going up one size from your normal size. And, let’s be honest… are you really going to get slimmer now?
