Rode the Badger to work today
in hopes of getting it a little more dialed in
before this Saturday's race. During the ride it dawned on me why I felt like I couldn't really get any power during the race and was stuck spinning my legs off .... drum roll please ... my seat was waaaay too low. I raised it at least an inch and half and now I'm feeling like myself. What was I thinking? Why didn't this occur to me in Arkansas?
I guess it must be a case of domain specificity. I mostly ride a road bike and can't stand it being a hair out of the right height, but I just didn't apply the same mindset to the mtb. Sheesh. Lesson learned.
Oh well, I thought this bike was pretty darn cool before, but with the saddle at the right height, it really is a lot better.
