#!markdown Me too, or possibly the outsized influence XC racing has held over mountain biking for 30+ years. It is notably the driving force in drivetrain design though? It's why Shimano can't give up on the front derailleur, SRAM has released 12-speed, and the GEAR section of every mountain bike forum is 1/2 full of posts asking ~ "is it normal for my chain derail when I back pedal in my easier gears".
