Just a bit over two years ago, as of this writing, I started an activity that has become my passion. Mountain Biking. I learned a few things over this period of time that I want to share away for the next newbie around the root/rock/bush/drop emm... corner.

My first bike was a K2 Sport XS. Although it was in nice shape it was clearly 3 times smaller than my 5.7' body requires. I was also 219 pounds so I guess it balanced out the fact that I could barely get from point A to B regardless of the bike's frame.

My second bike was a HUGE improvement over the the first. A SuperFly 100/AL Elite bought as lightly used by a local teacher. It served as a wonderful intro to understand a lot better what works and what doesn't for me and the trails that I usually ride.

My current bike is a fantastic BMC Speedfox 02 2018 size M with 27.5 wheels size (specs).

At this point I am far enough in the game of biking to have a few certainties at least for people for the equivalent experience and body similarities.

Clothing

I ride in all four seasons. Which means that I need to have three things right:

I achieve that with the following items. I don't get any kick for referrals so what is linked below is just what it worked for me.

Undergarments

Shoes

Shirts

Pants

Gear
