Technique has gotten better 

  • You see things more clearly and know what is going to happen 
  • That means you anticipate it and use it to your advantage 
  • You shift your weight better  - so much of this is your body position 
  • Line choice is better now 

Your tolerance level is higher 

  • Things that you used to think were horrible are now not really even noticeable - you realize the chassis can handle so much more - you've seen it a thousand times 
  • You are looser or more free on the bike - free flowing and light 

Suspension is better now 

  • For many of us, we started on MX bikes with MX suspension 
  • Manufacturers have started to realize that most of use don’t need suspension for crusty demons of dirt episode 17 - we want the suspension to move out of the way 
  • For me, I’m using TUbliss with only 6-8 lbs of pressure now… not 15 lbs - don’t over pressure!
