It makes me happy every time I read about someone re-discovering their hardtail stoke on a modern geo frame. Also thanks for the Tannus Tubeless review. It motivated me to get over my insert skepticism and try one. For the back of my hardtail it's a great product. I added steri-strips to my bike "tool kit" after a particularly viscous pedal to shin incident had me get 9 staples this summer. And MTB pants have become my go to for Van Isle winter riding after a decade of being hardcore in shorts during the dark/moist part of the year. On the speed issue you mentioned I stopped using Strava in 2020, rode hardtails a ton and had just as much fun as ever in the forest even if my "segment" times were slower. So hardtails, 275ers, downcountry, etc... if it puts a smile on your face it's the right call. Whether you are 1000th or 1001st on the Strava Leaderboard doesn't matter at all. All the best for 2021.
