Any riders out there lately been interested in doing LESS for your bike than more?
I get a strange pleasure out of taking my 35+ Gary Fisher MTB with rear rack and all up a big mountain and passing all the complex alloy bikes out there. I don't even have cages or clips on my pedals, and have the intro-level derailleur which requires a couple of cranks sometimes, but it still gets the job done.
I heard some folks are even trying to ride mtns nowadays with single-gear bikes!
Any hardcore folks out there?
