Post ride beer selection & drinking
Good point about climbing. About a week ago I picked the wrong line and the front tire barely touched this mini-stump you would normally just ride over but it stopped me dead in my tracks... simply because I was climbing. I put my feet down and just laughed out loud at my defeat.I often ride a rigid SS and that's what I really enjoy about it. I'll often choose the rocky line just for fun. it's really when climbing where I have to pick a particular line, to maintain momentum and successfully get up short but tricky tech spots. Line picking is probably my favorite aspect of mountain biking, I really love the focus it requires. I have no interest in long travel bikes.
