    Riding hardtails seemed like going to church and feeling good about having kneeled in a pew for an hour. My first good full suspension bike, by contrast, felt like having sex. I soon stopped riding hardtails altogether...but Klunking has me reconsidering my past.

    It's always useful to break the pattern of what you're doing. Singletrack on a klunker, or a road bike, or a bmx, is always enlightening, as is (gasp) occasional cross-country blundering where no trail has been or will be. This sort of deviance reminds your eyes to see, your body to feel, and your brain to explore new patterns.
