Anyone have any advice on this?
bikes can hold you back. if you feel like a new bike will make you want to ride more/improve your experience: do it!cmktech said:Mountain biking has brought a lot to me, and has really given me something that is truly my own.
I come from racing sprint cars, and having lots of sponsors, but that is what ruined it, the sponsors. I have always had racing in my blood, but when it comes to mountain biking, I feel NO urge what so ever to race.
I love just going out and xc riding on singletrack. Whether it's bombing down switchbacks, working rough rocky or technical terrain, or even granny gearing it up climbs, I feel so in tune with myself when I am mountain biking.
My question is, lately I have rode a lot of light bikes and nicer bikes that are more xc style, and am just questioning my bike.
I feel limited on climbs, and feel like my bike is more urban. Is my bike holding me back because it is not fulfilling my needs as an xc bike? Please be honest. Now I know any bike can do anything, but I hope you get what I mean.
