I forgot to clean my bike!
I have great mountain bike.
With the right fork and wheels it can easily handle the most extreme XC course. Change the fork and wheels and it will happily descend World Cup DH courses such as Fort William. The only caveat being I must take the time to prepare the bike for the type of riding.
7pm, Saturday night: I FORGOT TO CLEAN/REBUILD MY BIKE. !*$@!
9pm - finished!
Silver lining??? I missed the X-factor............... :)
