I started when the sport was starting about 30 (5) years ago.
When I lived in Denver I road to work every day 7 miles and took the courthouse route over stairs and shit....
Road mtn's on days off when I wasn't fishing, or strapped a rod tube to the bike and road up Waterton Canyon to get away from the tourists.
My mind is blown watching vids now of what is being done on mountain bikes.
I'm trying to help my son grow in the sport, but like computers, it's changing faster than you can blink.
High end bikes cost more than the first new pickup I bought.
They even have scholarships now....at real universities for this.
The last three years has been staggering to try and catch up with over one summer.
Anyway, just a feeler.
I can't keep up w/ my kid...but I still fix his broke shit.
