What would you say the bulk of you riding is?

I'm a skidding, dirt-slashing, back-flipping, jump-building vagabond

I couldn't pull a skid if I tried, too busy enjoying the scenery.

I don't actually ride, I only come here for the kittens.

No, I'm too cheap.

But I have been using the opportunity provided by flats to practice.

Its such a massive identity crisis that i'm often ashamed to tell people that I enjoy mountain biking :(

And then my bikes hang in the shed getting lonely :( but the kittens and scenery are great :thumbsup:

Had a flats win today. Moved my feet even further forward on descent, improved grip and cornering.

Kind of annoying also though, I was already forward of max cleat position... might have to investigate more modern clit shoes.

Locating the clit position is critical to good performance

I like a challenge not so much into big jumps and wild moves a good technical track on my hardtail that gives me a few thrills and makes me push my skills a bit floats my boat ,Im not too fussy about scenery but it can be nice sometimes ,I guess I would have to say Kittens cause im somewhere in between the options .... mostly I like mud, if I get home and the missus makes me strip on the doorstep before Im allowed inside its been a great day :D
