You know that Want To Bang The Head Into A Wall feeling?
While setting up my high-tech indoor training facility (old road bike on tacx in the living room) I checked the spokes and rims on all my bikes and found out that my rear wheel of my go-to bike had two torn spokes - so no dropper in the near future.
Get a bigger rim for the hardtail for more volume and less stress for next season (trails and bike parks with one bike).
