    Rigor in Sun, Sand, Snow, and Smud

    Had a fun, muddy ride trying out the new 42T rear cog, and a new Ram handlebar mount filming rearward. Nothing fancy on the edit as this was a test on how steady the camera would be over rough terrain. +10 for Ram, the mount was brilliant for the VIRB. Apologies if the music is too loud, you may want to turn your volume down before hitting play. 2 minutes in is my favorite part, the turn around the edge of the ridge - and at 2.44 I changed mounting positions for the downhill run to the back chainstay.

    Money doesn't buy happiness, but you can buy a bike, and that is pretty close.

    Not sure why I don't have a link with the OP, strange. Neat video, at some points it almost looks like the tire is going backwards.

    Thanks toddre, I will be sure to start including direct links in the future! Today was even muddier, even crashed hitting a nasty clay section - was almost like soup. Should make for a fun edit this week.

    That camera/device really does do a nice job. Also, super jealous of you being able to ride right now! My riding partner and I are skiing some MTB trails but we're both first-year skiers and are much more comfortable on the MTB, so naturally its more fun.

    So how did you feel on steep and techy stuff with the 1x10 and 42t?

    I tell you, that 42T is a blessing - you can just spin up any hill that comes up. The only difficulty I had was when some of the uphill sections had three inches of wet clay. I could spin through, but there were lots of slippage from the tires, and wandering handlebars. All in all, a great purchase for me.
