I went to a new place for biking today and it was a lot more challenging than the regular place. I learned a lot.
It was in the high 20s/low 30s with 20-40 mph winds
-I suck at climbing
-Rocky descents are awesome
-High wind and cold is awful
-I love my e.13 LG1
-I miss my granny gear
-I need a larger gear ration (current: 32 x 11/27)
-Don't love mud
-Track pedals are awful off road
-Derailleurs don't shift when the whole bottom bracket/downtube mounted cable area is covered in frozen mud
-Frozen mud makes a bike heavy, and you can't get it off easily with a stick.
-I really want to get into downhill
It was a really fun day though, and look forward to doing it again.
