This winter has been unprecedented in how much I have been riding my XC bike. I guess that’s a good thing. It has a lot to do with Brian Poston switching his work schedule to days, so we have been riding a lot together. Additionally, Carl Hill has been a regular. We did Norris last night and it was a great time. I convinced them to try and climb Reservoir Hill in their middle rings since that how I do it. As expected, they did it. I have all the parts to add a front derailleur to by Mbuzi but just can’t do it. I’m afraid I’ll get lazy and ride in it too much. Most of our trails aren’t so steep for long enough to warrant a granny ring. I find I can usually muscle up them or just walk. Which I have no problems doing.
