Wow, thanks snowolf. i know you probably get asked that a gajillion times a season but it was so concise and clear, your tips really helped me yesterday on the hill. I really got a good feel for the torsional steering aspect of it, as well as just the whole looking where you want to go which is surprsingly a gigantic help. also got a good feel for my loose athletic stance, and what it feels like to actually be riding correctly as opposed to sideslipping all over the place.
it was a pretty good day, even despite a crack/warp in my tail end.
