Greetings

I just recently moved to Colorado, and have been biking for only a couple months now, and have become hopelessly addicted to it. I prefer road biking but also enjoy mountain biking, except I can not seem to get through 1 day of mountain biking without a crash, my record is two crashes, 5 minutes and 100 yards apart. The only reason it took 5 minutes was because I spent 4 minutes walking off the first crash. Ive logged only 800 or so miles so total, mostly on the roads, so by most of your standards I am pretty inexperienced, although I fall very well I think.

Welcome to the forums. If you aren't crashing on a MTB, are you really having fun anway? Crashing on the roadie, not so much fun though.

The reason I hate gravity is because it is constantly foiling my plans, the ones that have me remaining behind the handlebars Not true in every case, my worst crash was caused by something breaking on my bike, they call it 'traction'
