Handling

It might be just me, but I find handling a Mountain bike easier than handling a BMX....

What gives...surely it should be the other way round?

Do any others have this...or am I a complete saddo with no friends...:confused: Rich

I'd say it's from the size of the tires. I find that weird too, but that's all I can figure out. I can't ride my BMX bike no-handed, because the wheel flops all the time. I think that's mainly since the wheel is small. I can ride for miles on a MTB without hands. Maybe it's just the position of the weight. Not sure, it's got me puzzled, too.

What's a saddo?

Urm,

a saddo is a person who has no friends and is completely useless....hehe, ofcourse, just the fact that I'm a cyclist and a member of these boards means that I have lots of friends...but maybe I am completely useless...

Hehe
