I went for a muni this afternoon, mainly on sandy trails, but covering
semi-bitumen, gravel and sand trails. Luckily most of the downhill was steep and
sandy whilst the uphills were gentler slopes and mostly semi-sealed. Apart from
the obvious problems such as eating dirt a lot and getting thrown forward as the
wheel dug into the sand on the fast downhill slopes it was a lot of fun.
Strangely though, I didn’t encounter the usual problems of sore balls / sore
legs. My main problem was a really sore back, even though i was trying to ride
upright like when i ride normally (on road).
Does anybody else have this problem, or know how to deal with it? Could it be
anything to do with my 20" wheel?
