I ride my Surly Pug on the trails out west. It's not unusual to find soft surfaces, deep gravel and mud. Trails like the Modoc, and Shasta can have surfaces like that. Other trails like the John...

55 and I don't worry about the BMI, which says I'm obese at 210. I eat healthy and keep hiking/cycling. I figure my body knows where my weight needs to be.

Odd, I have both Factor 5 Leiden and MTHFR but my doc has never said to cut out the hiking--downhill or up. I've never

I use one when it gets below freezing because I have asthma. It works well in the cold temps, but it might be overkill at 50. Have you tried a Buff rag? That might keep things warm enough for you....

I faced that same choice yesterday. I had the shop replace both the chain and the cassette, for a grand total of $51 dollars. No more skipping chain for a couple of years and the bike runs great.
