Overthinking the draft from the basement already
good one - originally, i had the idea that i wanted to get in for exercise, then i got a little fitness, and wanted to race a bit,How is a new rider to know what kind of bike they are really after?
I had ridden 25 years prior on a rigid 26r, and upgraded to a hardtail 29r for the comeback. Then a FS bike
to race, then a more-better FS bike. I'll still race to participate, but it is all about staying on the bike now -
which is why i ride fat. not worried about bombing the dh, but would like to conquer more tech.
can't always get over the bigger logs tho.
So it is fluid, and depends on budget. i'm in a funk at the moment, not sure why - thought the nice weather would motivate me.
