Celebrating my Inner Geezer

At Putney and Pats Peak I just got shelled on the descents. As much as I hate to, I think I need to go back to a hardtail. I don't think a suspension fork is going to win a race, but after the pathetic display of descending I put on in New Hampshire, I think the positive will out weigh the negative.

  • More control descending
  • more speed in the rough
  • more speed on descent
  • More weight (about 1.7 lbs when you add the weight of the sussie fork, less the weight of not needing such a gnarl tire up front)
  • Some bob on the ascents
  • Joining AARP
