Even though ski season is still going strong, I’ve been itching to get out on the mountain bike. The sort-of-weekly MTBW got going for the year today, and I’m really anticipating summer now.
After much complaining about derailleurs last summer, Zach finally set up his bike with an IGH. A little bit of added weight but super-slick and incredibly quiet. I must admit, I’m tempted to do the same.
I forgot how difficult climbing with a 35lb mountain bike is, but I wasn’t hurting too bad thanks to some solid training over the winter.
MTBW is a highlight of my week in summer, and I’m glad it’s back. Of course, I’ll be back on snow in a couple days.
