After riding every day during the whole summer break my body is dead. Today has been the worst.
Yesterday I went for a 47 mile road ride (on my MTB) and today for a trail ride of about 16 miles. I can’t walk, my back kills, my hamstrings are tight and of course, my butt hurts. I have had back pain after rough rides but was noy too concerned. I tried different positions on the bike with different measurement fittings and still hasn’t helped.
I talked to a friend who raced HT many years and was very good. She now has compressed discs and other back problems. Her husband who raced also has back problems too. They also do not have kids. They may not want too, I will never ask. But is there the possibility that maybe they can’t? Now they both ride fullys but still don’t ride as much as they want to.
So the question is how a hardtail can affect your body health? If anyone can give me a link to some info that would be great. I am young still but I don’t want to be a crippled old man.
