So I'm riding an Ellsworth Epiphany with a Talas 130 up front and a stack of spacers under the bar. I have a Nevegal 2.3 in the front and the 2.1 in the back.
Both crashes were at speed in soft pack taking very mellow turns aggressively when the front tire washed out with absolutely no warning and the next thing I know I'm in the dirt.
Is there any advice out there for me?
My ideas are:
1. O.K. I admit it; both times I was sleep deprived and I'm 39 years old now.
2. The Nevegals have no early warning when there about to wash out. (ie. Maybe you can recomend another sticky pref. ust tread that doesn't suddenly dump you).
3. I'm not weighting my bars enough with the Talas on full extension and the stack under the bars. (ie. Maybe I should take out a few spacers so there's more weight on my front tire as I'll then have more weight forward.
4. It's time to quit technical riding. Sorry, but the confidence level is low after those out of the blue falls.
Let me know,
Also, this is my first time posting, so let me know if I did it in the appropriate way and appropriate forum.
