I can't tell you how many times I've been chatting with guys on the trails and they've told me they wished they had a hardtail. Its better for climbing, which we have a lot of here, makes technical stuff, which we have a lot of here, way more fun. I'd say getting a clipless setup is necessary for a hardtail though. I rode with flats once and got bounced off the pedals way too many times when bombing down through some rougher stuff.
Where in the Bay area are you? Might be fun to go ride some dirt. (Hell it would be good to get out on a bike again. 14 times this year is pathetic.)

Fun fact, tree's aren't soft. Hit one at a pretty clip riding last week which sent me straight over the bars onto my face.

Tree hugging at speed is never a good idea, unless you are falling down a cliff.

That did leave a mark, and I'm sure you are going to be feeling that for a few days.

Yea I've taken the last week and a half off. It's been so swollen I haven't been able to do much but am hoping to get back on this weekend.


Thankful to have had my google on too otherwise my face would have gotten it alot worse.

so satisfying but holy crap it takes forever. I laced up my first bmx wheel when I was young and I think it took me almost two hours to get it straight enough to feel good about it. Super discouraging after watching that mail order wheel lacing competition between albes and danscomp lol. Those guys could lace and true a wheel in like 11 minutes or something

Took me hours, I laced the new rim for the front, then did the rear using an old hub, one flange was right the other had the spokes exiting the hub the wrong way... took forever to figure out how to get it right. Then I relaced the front the same way... then I did it again with the hub facing the same way as the rim's label lmao. Still gotta true but atleast they're assembled properly so far.
