Sample text

Eventually we learned to manage the rear tire along with the front, and it was good. It should come as no surprise that mountain biking becomes smoother, faster, easier, and more enjoyable when our rear wheel rolls around or glides over some of the objects it used to encounter violently and clumsily. * The two wheels will enter any given section of trail at different times and likely at different locations. The two lines are separate but not independent. The path of the rear tire, the follower, is a complicated function of the line chosen for the front tire.

Then, as their bodily systems adapt and all the associated skills sharpen, they’re often still attached to that tiny gear even though it’s not suitable anymore. They simply spin faster and faster to compensate. It’s hard to let go of that precious granny, like Linus with his blanket. To a degree, that’s fine. It’s useful to develop a good spinning technique. Working low gears will preserve energy on long rides, and it’s difficult to hurt oneself by riding too low gears. However, spinning too fast will be more trouble than it’s worth and will also hinder one’s ability to get over rocky or rooty sections.

They have to come to terms with that before we introduce a new layer of complexity. Learning to “take care of the front wheel” comes first. When choosing a line for the front tire, see the trail and potential lines in all their three-dimensional glory. The singletrack can only rarely be described as a flat surface or a flat surface with a scattering of obstacles to be steered around. This means available lines are rarely flat, two-­ dimensional. They go up and down as well as side to side, and usually a little bit of both at the same time.
