    I can't get over the climbing ability of this bike! By far one of the best climbing platforms out there! I was tempted by the SB5c but so glad I didn't! Still working on the DH which is good but more stiff then plush feeling. Have had some issues with the rear tire and bent rim lip already on the Ibis 738 wheels. Even though this bike is more geared for the DH it feels like an all around bike.

    The Kinetic, not the bike. After 12 years of riding, I finally broke down and bought a trainer. Hopefully this lets me ramp up to speed more quickly in the spring. Playing soccer and running during the winter to stay fit causes too much wear and tear.

    I bought a trainer last year with that same hope. It turns out that riding a trainer is really boring and I haven't touched the thing in almost a year. I'd rather bundle up and just go ride in the cold.

    Try watching one of BKXC'S longer trail rides on his YouTube channel or cueing up a few shorter ones while on the trainer. Helps pass the time and stay motivated.

    Yup I've seen his videos. The trainer is still boring. Most of the fun in cycling is going on, over, or around obstacles. I just can't get into hammering away on a trainer.

    The smart trainer has made it a lot more interesting than I was expecting. I did 55 minutes yesterday (after managing to jack up my winter bike wheel/tire setup before attempting to get a ride in while my daughter was in pre-school... I gave up and got on the trainer). The warm up and cool down are dull, but the intervals where I'm trying to match a given power output isn't bad. I mountain biked outside today and will keep night riding once a week, but there are 2 nights a week where I'm solo parenting and riding outside is out of the question. Those will be the nights I'm on the trainer.

    Here is a screenshot from the app.

    A smart trainer made a the difference in the world to me. I built custom training plans in Zwift and I can stick to them pretty consistently and at times I just like to just ride around on Zwift.

    Different strokes for different folks I guess. I plan to do more weight lifting and core strength exercises this winter and just ride when I can.

    Yeah we don't get that kind of snow here. Mostly rain in the winter. Riding in the cold is one thing, and while it can be uncomfortable, I can bear it. Riding in the cold and rain is bananas. We also have to deal with the freeze thaw cycle on the trails that makes them heave and get muddy, so most riding is road riding.

    Yea road cycling here is rough, even if the snow is clear there is always the risk of black ice.

    The greenway in Murfreesboro frequently has the river flooding over it, which translates to a thin layer of slick mud on concrete. I fell a few years ago trying to get around some walkers. Concrete is hard

    Got a ATM Handmade Tube Sack during his deal, it is a high quality bag and really like the placement idea. I never really liked bags hanging off the saddle on my road/gravel bike.
