I'm pretty proud of my little cross bike that I built up on an '05 Kona Jake frame. I was a mountain biker, but moved to road biking. Road bikes seemed too fragile to me, so I compromised. I still take my mtb out from time to time.
Last time I went out was with my brother, on a fairly technical trail. We both went over the handlebars a few times. I kept telling him that I could take my cross bike down that trail if I wanted, and he called me out. We go for it this weekend.
Am I going to die?
