    Should a new mountain biker learn to ride on flat or clipless pedals?

    I've been encouraged to ride flats to improve my handling and control. I moved from CX to XC so being clipped in is where I'm comfortable. I might try to ride more on flats this spring. Oh and I'm definitely a shimano user for all the reasons listed. Bombproof, serviceable and inexpensive. Not...

    Who are you?

    I'll be in that race with you! It is a very flat, very fast, sandy course. One steep punchy climb and some downward stairs. They were thinking about letting people stay overnight in the Scout Camp Bunks and pre-ride the course last year. Hope they make that happen!

    CO2... why's it so darn expensive?

    XC race bike upgrades

    All amazing advice, but yea... this most of all. My biggest (see my beer belly) problem lies right here, My old coach used to joke about seeing overweight races talking about shedding grams on the bike while carrying an extra 10-15 in the mid section. Will be buying new rubber this season...

    XC race bike upgrades

    All good ideas.. I wonder if my XT hubs can be swapped for a 12 or 13 speed driver? Though it's QR so maybe not? And @Magic I like my Stan's Arch's with Ardents for racing though I'm considering going a bit wider to handle the rocks of Northern NJ
