Opinion: The Opposite of Learning to Fly
Tucking/rolling is an awesome skill to have, and it'll get you out of a ton of jams. Anyone with a BMX background knows how to fall off a bike! But some crashes don't go down like that, and your bike will toss you however it wants. It's a real false sense of security you get when you ninja dismount a few bike wrecks in a row. I'm 38 and six weeks out from broken ribs and a seperated shoulder. The only thing I remember other than the crack when it hit the ground was flying through the air head first, with my hands somewhere down near my waist line. I can ride at 90% and basically never crash. As soon as I push it to my limits (thanks Strava!) I risk wrecking. Great article, stuff I've spent a lot of time reflecting on lately.

Video: Night vs. Day Riding - Can Christina Ride Just As Fast?
IMO, bar lights are more important than a helmet mount (though I always run both). Moving the lights off-axis from your eyes allows the contrast and shadows to show the terrain. Helmet light fills in the gaps. I try and run my bars twice as bright as my helmet light to keep from washing out all the texture.

First Look: 2022 Trek Roscoe Hardtail
Ya, too bad there are so few plus tire options these days, they totally transform a hardtail. Useless in the mud, but otherwise they are comfortable, fast rolling, great climbing traction... Don't really understand the online hate...
