The quote about riding precious bikes less often is spot on, for me. Obsessing over every detail can be debilitating, also. You know it’s particularly bad when you choose not to ride until you have a part that you’ve ordered, or something of that nature. Switching to a hardtail has benefitted me quite a bit, in that regard. At the end of the day, if I have a bad day on my NS Bikes Eccentric, it’s because I didn’t ride it well. I’m faster and more comfortable on it, than I ever was on my full-suspension bike, here in the midwest, because I stopped spending more time on setup than actually improving my riding.
Not knocking anyone on a tricked out fully, just saying that for me, the limiting factor has always been me.
