    SouthSide Fern Gully SHort Steep Climb?

    I am trying to figure out if it is my new fork or the moister in the ground or roots?

    There is only one really steep short climb on Fern Gully, if you are traveling Fern Gully from center line. I have always made this climb. I recently Changed forks from a 140mm Revelation to a 150mm revelation. Now my rear wheel is spinning out on the last big root and I am having to dismount quickly. I have noticed that I am climbing the same or better on all other climbs, including the one before spill hill.

    Has anyone else experienced increased difficulty on this particular climb on Fern gully?

    Thanks!

    it was moist today, no big difference though. you'll figure out the perfect balance the more you ride it. just sit/lean back a fraction more buddy.

    I rode Fern Gully two weeks ago and it seemed about normal.

    I rode it today and the trail was pretty much dry and the hill was cleared with no problems.
