Went for a ride tonight after work and made some better trail selections this time around. Had a much better time of things. The bike is finally feeling pretty dialed as well. I have the Avid Elixir Rs now, 203 mm rotor up front and 185 mm on the back, and they have such great modulation it's crazy. Very powerful as well. The bike is fast. It loves the choppy technical sections and seems to float through them. Very confidence inspiring. The main thing I will have to learn to be more careful of is pedal position. I have the sag set at 35% so the bottom bracket is quite low to the ground and the pedals and crank arms will strike the ground or rocks quite readily if I'm not paying attention to where my feet are. And, I think I need to add a bit of air to the fork since it's quite soft, and I need to play with the rebound setting to get it to pop a little more. It seemed kind of sluggish and wallowed a bit in certain situations (which is common for Marzocchi forks). I can improve that feel though, so it should be tweaked and tuned after the next ride. I'm excited for the season; it's going to be a great one.
