Hello! Has anyone here competed in XC with a fully rigid bike? I'm looking for tips, experiences, remembrances. I have a Surly Ogre that I want to race, but I'm nervous about my chances of finishing even mid-pack. I know just from putzing around on the local trails that I can climb faster than most but I just get annihilated on the downhills. Anyway, any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
