Fall Riding Tips
Written by Sliders Guy   
Tuesday, 09 October 2012 00:00

This time of year the riding can be great but definitely has it's challenges. The leaves cover up the trail and make things slick. After a dry summer it may be time to change tires to something that grips and sheds mud. That sweet line you love may have mud and leaves covering it up so keep your eyes peeled and ride light and quick over potentially slick roots. Feet and hands can get cold quick especially if they get wet so dress appropriately. The dry creek beds have some water in them now so warmer shoes or covers could be the ticket to a comfy ride. A quick clip on rear fender can save your butt from wet and muddy spray.

Just a few tips to keep you riding through the cooler fall weeks.

Keep Pedaling,

Sliders Guy

Taking The Mystery Out of the Front Derailleur

If you read my article Smooth Shifting on rear derailleurs, you probably learned some tricks that will be useful in adjusting the front derailleur as well.

The front derailleur can be tricky because the mechanic must first make several adjustments to align the front derailleur with the chainrings before making any useful adjustments. These alignments are made by eye. New front derailleurs come with a guide sticker on the outer plate to help line the outer plate with the teeth on the largest chainring.

Some front derailleurs are mounted in a fixed position on the frame and cannot be adjusted. If you have a fixed-position front derailleur (like and e-type or direct mount), you can skip the first step assuming the derailleur, frame, and chainrings on the crank were designed to work together.

One of the most common things people complain about on their bikes is the shifting.

Even a new bike can shift poorly if it's not set up correctly. I'm going to limit this article to rear shifting. I'll follow up with front shifting later.

After assembling thousands of bikes over the years, I can tell you that many new bikes often take just as much of a beating in getting to the shop as they do out on the trail.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
