I found the thrill of sewups, what's next? ...Embrocation?
How important is embrocation?
I discovered that sewups make a night'n'day difference to my riding and enjoyment. They're such a great secret weapon. I'm just a beginner, but used to race a lot of bikes and skis and I like the cold just fine.
I've read some pro's-con's discussions of embro, but I'm wondering if the consensus is that it makes a sizeable difference. I suppose it all depends, but I was curious if it falls into the secret weapon category as significant (almost) as something like sewups for folks. I'm guessing that's an over the top comparison. Nothing could be that important, that I can tell. But who knows! Not me.
I just won some as swag and will try it but am curious about how impt folks think it is. Yeah, if it ends up being fun for me that'll be enough, etc.
Also does the type used seem to matter a lot? I see lots of chat about brands and grades. Oh well, again, I suppose everyone is different. Maybe it's just another fun lore thing that if ya like it, do it. : )
