I want to be better at mountain biking.
Specifically: more efficient at climbing, more comfy with a bit of air, and more better at sitting longer on that thing.
So I'm going to ride my mountain bike more. I'm commuting on it for the next couple weeks and seeking out the dirt options.
The climbing thing is weird, because the bike wants me to sit and spin and I'm a stander and jammer. I can't believe how tired out I get sitting and spinning.
As for air. This is a slow process. I'm off the blood-thinners now, so I can practice a bit more guilt-free on the air front. And the little area behind the Japanese Garden at Manito Park provides a nice little practice spot that's close by.
Long hauls: I may need to put a Brooks or a plastic-Brooks replica on there. The WTB that's on there doesn't work for me.
