Just getting back into mountain bike riding after a 13 year hiatus. Wow! Everything has changed in the world of bikes! Picked up a 2018 Altitude to catch up from my very old bike.

On the RIDE-9 system. anyone have an easy model to look at it? In the 2017 and older models - the picture was easy using a quadrant with efficient to aggressive riding on one axis and weight on another. It was easy to follow along the 9 settings and understand the movement towards weight and aggressiveness etc.

On the 2018 and later system - all the numbers have changed. And while I get that 1 is most slackest and 9 is steepest - I don't know how things move in between.

Looking for an easy way to understand similar to the 2017 grid.

For background I am almost 5'11" but shorter legs for that height (30 inseam in pants), 220 lbs. Not an aggressive rider as I am just getting back into it and learning so suck at everything and conservative and boy do I hate climbing.

My local trail is Duthie Hill in Issaquah, WA.

Thanks all!
