    Lil MTB Friday Fun

    Took the mtb out today to test the new rear wheel. Have to make sure it stays together before I go wandering about ending up with another 2 hour walk ha ha! Worked well and I got in a good ten miles.

    I did Claremont Hills in the clockwise direction. Once I got to the top I figured I'd wander to the left toward the signals on the hill. After I explored some around the hills looking for some single track I had seen in some videos. Hmm, short sections here and there, climb for two minutes then descend for a minute. Oh well, I'm not much into technical stuff anyway. I did see another single track section at the very top of the trail. There was one trail that went down the middle, very down, more like a cliff. I'd kill myself on that thing so no way ha ha!

    Just an exploration ride so I threw in some posing on video.

    Well, I see your problem right away.

    Red bikes go faster (see: Redshift). You have parts of your bike that are red - your rear will is going to spin faster than your front. Clearly that's going to be an issue. Also, your forks are faster than the rest of your frame. Eventually, that's going to stress out your headset.

    I think you are right.
