short overview is I come from a road-biking background, got into MTB this spring. I mostly ride with the BF, who is awesome and very patient. I'm usually following on singletrack.
Is there proper protocol for if you're slowing/stopping/getting off to go around an obstacle? In the road world, we signal (obviously can't on a MTB) or call out "slowing/stopping!".
The bf drives me nuts doing so without warning, and we've had a few close calls. I have asked him to do this, and he says "we don't do that on MTB".
But then, maybe I'm following too close? (again, the road biker in me might be trying to draft. )
