Thanks to all for the great advice in setting up my new BRP. Today was my first real ride and the bike performed perfectly. I went to Hungry Valley near Groman Ca. with a experinaced group who knew the trails well. They had the skills to pull away in the tight twistys but on the whoops and straites I could catch up and pass the Husabergs and yzf's in our group with NO problem. And the big hills? Forget about it, Pick a gear, any gear then motor to the top. Has anyone ridden Backbone trail? Wow is that fun. But sadly todays 100miles is the first i have ridden in 20 years. I am so sore i cant believe it. Guess id better get in the gym. Thanks again for all your help and advice.
