Catching The Bug
. . . and this has been a bug I caught almost 30 years ago and one I have never tried to cure. Mountain bike life started out for me on a VERY heavy Huffy bike. Every ride was a heavy-lifting workout and when the bike came down on top of me, it hurt. Thankfully, not long after I got started (living in Germany at the time) I discovered Specialized and a Rockhopper Comp; Trail life changed that day, even with zero suspension, although converting to front shocks wasn’t a long time coming. . . luxury.
Since those early days, I honestly have no idea how many miles / K.M. I’ve covered. How much I’ve spent on bikes, parts and accessories, haven’t a clue. But the important thing is that I’ve enjoyed every ride and tried every discipline; ultimately settling with Cross-Country because of the need for a broad variety of skills and the stunning places I often come across. That said, I support all MB disciplines and wouldn’t dream of dropping a negative comment because of the bike somebody rides – Just Ride!
Helping The Mountain Bike Community
With such a broad range of available budgets and the wealth of bikes and accessories available deciding what you want and what best fits your budget and needs can be overwhelming. It certainly was for me in the early days and had I had the right information I may well have saved a fortune in unnecessary spends (and injuries). Today, I do save, thanks to the wealth of experience I’ve collected over the years.
If you have the ride and set-up that suits you without too much trial and error, the trails call more than maintenance demands
THE GOAL OF “Just Ride”
. . . Is to do just that with minimal self and bike maintenance.
