I remember when I first started riding MTBs back in the early 90s (circa 91) Heading out to stilly....doing a loop and then heading south to BP. The trail was muddy thatthe mud would fly off the dart front tire with grass and leaves.......it would cake up on the straddle cables below the chill pill and eventually clog the wheels and keep them from moving......I was with my buddy danny and we would look at each other and say...."Man this is so awesome" it was just like racing moto in the mud
I remember heading out to Calvy with Dmack and cory. They had studded tires and I had bled my tires down to about 10lbs and were riding on an ice covered trail........what a blast!!!
Now I just hate the cold and dont want to damage my expensive drive train
