Too much weight on the front and it lets go. The narrower the the ideal slip angle (road bike), the harder it is to feel and keep right on the limit. Shitty MTB setup will give you bad feedback. Good MTB setup will talk to you, if you pay attention.

On an MTB, don't spend too much mental energy on what your back tire is doing. Focus on putting the front where you want it and getting it weighted properly for best grip.

Lean the bike a lot. If the front tire slides- put more weight on it. If the back is sliding- more weight on it.

yes to every thing that was said. Take note of the hip position that bryceland has. Not enough is said about hip position with talking about mountain bike cornering, mostly because it seems intuitive to seasoned riders. I do more riding with my hips on my mtb then I do with my hands.

Find yourself a flat or barely off camber corner that's either grassy or soft because crashing while doing this is a given. Keep going into the corner and lean the bike over as far as you can... keep doing this until the bike washes out (front will almost assuredly go first) and then dial that lean angle back. Then keep at that same corner until leaning the bike over that far becomes intuitive. You'll likely find that your top tube starts conflicting with your calf on your inside leg. This is them remedied by opening up your chest towards corner exit, which will force your hips to point towards your corner exit as well. It should end up feeling like you're pressing the bike down instead of steering it. The fact that the bike is leaned over will force the bike to turn, all you have to do is focus on your front tire and the corner exit at that point.

Brian lopes hits this topic well in this instagram post

There is another rabbit hole on cornering theory that suggests that cornering should be the same mechanics as loading a jump take off but instead leaned over on it's side instead of sending energy up. This is currently championed by Lee MacCormack. It's pretty heady, but thinking of cornering as the same sort of sine waves that enable jumping or bunny hopping allowed me to better understand how critical loading the bikes suspension (or tires if hardtail) right at the corner apex is. No less important then a pre-load if I'm hopping over a log.

You should ask the trainerroad podcast. Maybe they'll have a 3x olympian give his $0.02



But even if they do, there would be better info here on this thread.

Ordering a new Madone SLR 9 Disc frameset with custom Project One paint. Should look sorta like this when I build it.
Metallic gray lower. silver TREK logo, orange trim, bar tape. I'll run D/A Di2 with the D/A power meter cranks. Looking forward to even better aero than my Cervelo S3 Disc and better ride quality.
No external cables = teh sex

Did the annual Slip n Slide ride of stupidity:

Left my house at 4:30AM, got back at 5:45pm. Rode on trails up to about 12,500ft then took the PPHC road up to the top. Was about 22 degrees with a nice 30mph headwind near the top. Descended for a while then did a ton of bushwhacking looking for the old "Historic 1873 Pikes Peak Trail" see map. It's not there anymore. haha

10k gain all above 10k altitude. Jeebus. That should wipe yo out for a few days.

LOL at the avg wattage. Looks like some of my data from high alt gravel races. That'll happen when there is no like, air.

Did you notice the reduction in aero drag up high? Always weirds me out how fast you can go on flat ground at altitude. No air to make watts but also no air to push through. Double edged sword that.

The wattage estimate is worthless when you are hiking as much as pedaling. also- bike weighed about 40 lbs with 2 spare tubes, food and a bluetooth speaker with 80's training montage music playing. haha.


Aero? With a puffy jacket, baggy pants and 30mph headwind about half the guys were walking up the highway on the last pitch to the top of Pikes Peak. I managed to keep pedaling telling myself it was about 1mph faster than walking and I'd get out of the wind faster. brutal.

Yeah- we saw that note but wanted to check it out anyways. Lots of old mining/cog rail building garbage up there in the woods... cans, shovels, buckets etc.
