Muscle memory has been a gift for me. As my vision and attentive reactions decrease my years of experience are a true gem. Often I find my bike braking, swerving, skipping, and jumping over little things in the road that I no longer see. I guess that's why I am more comfortable with all my bikes set up the same. In the old days it was no big deal to switch from road to off road to bomber and back. Or even to slam the bars down and kick he seat up for a fast ride...

I know it sounds strange, and I am not a true Mountain Bike guy, but it just feels like its best to focus on things up ahead and let your body do the negotiating up close. If ya gotta think about it its usually too late...
