What Are Your Riding Resolutions for 2018?

Jan 1, 2018
by Pinkbike Staff  
BCBR and Kali

Happy New Year! 2017 had its ups and downs, but we've got a blank slate ahead of us. Besides messing up writing the date for the next few weeks, what do you have planned for the year?

The liaisons have some pretty epic views.

An epic adventure? Learning flip double whips? Riding once a week? Smashing some KOMs? A stage race? Saving for a new ride? Getting your partner into mountain biking? Eating more Haribo than is recommended by the FDA?

 Lift weights in off-season to put some mass back onto my cycling bod. Ride more than I did last year. Enjoy as many post-ride beers with my best friends as I can. Go on trips. Get the wheels off the ground whenever possible. Build new trail. Try not to spend all my money on bikes.

 A tip for that, find a small grass hill and have him keep riding down, don't worry about peddling just Ballance and finding the pedals. Sooner than later he will start working the cranks and be off. I have successfully taught several kids to ride this way. Some pick it up really fast. My oldest was riding in like 30 min using this method. Congrats and enjoy watching him learn.

 Bought my son a stryder this year. So, I'll be right with you.
  • + 7
 @Longtravel: I feel like I'm some kinda industry-newbike-kidboost-salesman right now... My 18 mo. old loved his stryder on perfectly smooth stuff, but as soon as a bump hit he'd completely get tossed. I bought a used Kokua Jumper for $100, and he LOVES it. At 2 years and 4 months, he rode a 5 mile XC loop. He just turned 3, and I built him a sick teeter-todder for the garage today.

 I just got our son pedaling on his own within the last month and it had to be the most gratifying thing I've done with bikes. Adventure races and double centuries and all that crap don't hold up next to seeing your kid get himself started and pedal on his own, and say "Biking is his favorite thing". Watching him pedal away I thought "This is the view for the rest of my life now."

 Like so many, I had a F*KNG HORRIBLE 2017. Good riddance. So my goal is to get back to work, make it stable, build myself back up, pay off debt, replace the bike that I didn't want to have to sell, but sold due to unemployment and being financially vulnerable - and bring mountain biking back into my life! Lot's of other goals but this one most PB appropriate.

 Man, Godspeed to you! I hope your upswing is steep and swift. My wife and I had a big downfall several years back. We sold everything we could. I sold my mountain bike and my road bike. After recently buying a new mountain bike and realizing how effing bad I missed riding, I told my wife that if anything happens again, I will sell my car before my bike goes.

 1. Try to maintain the level of fitness I've got
2. Keep riding the scary tech stuff I've always loved best
3. Not skip on the post ride beer

....despite chronic illness.

(so basically continue to do what I've been doing all 2017).

Chronic illness sucks, but you can work with it/around it... a lot of it is just stubbornness plus a little bit of masochism. Smile

 "Chronic illness sucks."

Amen, Brother. Look up Levator Ani Spasms. After you get done snickering, imagine it for 11 years. Still riding though. I just ride slower with more pushing on hills and in the fog of prescriptions. I also spend more time back in the bushes fertilizing the country side.

Could be worse. A friend of mine just had heart surgery.

  • + 33
 I know, I still crush my 1993 trail bike. Who needs threadless steerer tubes disc brakes, thru axles, better geometry? My V-brakes, threaded Fork, 25.4 bars, and Q/R skewers are just fine.

 @bman33: you just destroyed my sarcasm-o-meter.
  • + 2
 @bman33: well you're just being silly. tell me how a bunch of bb or hub standards is better for the consumer. also geo is not a standard.
  • + 1
 @literally: Agree. Geo is not a standard nor should it be a sales pitch. Geo is custom tailoring for bikes. Everyone is a different height with different reaches and different riding styles. A head tube may feel steeper to some than others. A low bb may feel good on a race course but maybe not to the average rider on a local trail wanting more ground clearance on slow technical parts. I've pulled the bike industry's marketing out of my butt and learned to ride what you got and enjoy it.
  • + 3
 @bman33: Funnily enought couple of Q/R skewers cost me an XC race. Was funny as hell
  • + 3
 @literally: Geometry can be viewed as a 'standard' just as tire size, BB and hub dimensions. I hate press fit bb's as well. However, bike companies test things out, some work out, some don't. Also, 148 thru is a better hub 'standard' than 135 Q/R. Yes, they should have skipped 142, but they didn't. That said, no one is forcing anything on anyone. Not many industries have interchangeable parts infinitely. In the end the better 'standard' will win (usually). The industry in a time of change just like they were in the early 90's with suspension 'standards', brakes, etc. People need to stop bitching and enjoy the bad ass bikes we have now.

 @partymob: I broke a front one in the middle of a Slalom race in 97 -98ish. Somehow my wheel sort of stayed on till the finish. Although is was very squirrelly. Ha!
  • + 2
 @bman33: you just described one of the bikes I actually ride, except it's a '94. Nice red KHS Descent, steel frame... funnest bike I have.
  • + 4
 @literally: fair enough that geo can progress in some ways without new standards, like growing reach. But, geo CAN be tied to standards as well. To make geometry changes you sometimes need changes in other components: new fork offset options for HTA and reach, available crank lengths for BB-drop, boost for CSL and bigger wheels (yes wheels are geometry), etc.

 @bman33: Your bike didn't had v-brakes in 1993. Try 1997.

 One of my goals is not spend all my riding time on going out for a short blast. Instead dedicate more time to dedicated skills practice (which implies spending more time on level ground, even car park or grassy areas) and work on my strength and flexibility (through yoga, pilates, James Wilson etc.). It is so tempting to spend all the riding time to just have a blast but I need to invest. It is easier to do now in winter but I know during spring and summer it is hard to hold back. Especially after a day at work. But these are my resolutions. I know my riding will benefit from the rewards.
  • + 1
 Soft goals, after 105 and 87 rides in the past two seasons, I'm gunning for 150 in the next one with 150k vertical meters of climbing. And a 25k climbing month, maybe even a 30k if all goes well. And maybe get a new ride in the summer. But in general, ride more.

 To ride more persistently, to push through the pain and to keep up the momentum no matter what. Not to buy a 29er or any new bikes for that matter. To ride a back tire until it is worn slick. To never toke and ride, only to ride and toke.

 Dig new trails and build cool features to improve skills. Anyone??

Oh, i forget that enduro guys are too busy riding DH tracks built by DH crews to pick a shovel and do good things for the bike community.

But hey! DH is dead because no DH spots around. Maybe it's time to buy a enduro 29er and just ride. Dig and build it's for loosers.

 To decide between the last coal or clay, numbers are paper are nearly identical, weights marginal (100g) and everything is close. 140mm Vs 160mm, but why give up the extra 20mm unless there's a tweak in the kinematics to make the 140mm rig more responsive. It'll be in the build kit battle too.

 Place non-life threatening obstacles in the driveway or on the trail and hit it. My first real bunny hop was over a curb at high speed on a bmx bike.
