You need a specific purpose bicycle.
- Fork and shock pressure : Check for the right PSI and pump it the nite before. Do some trial cycling to get the right pressure.
- Braking Power : Check your brake pad. If you think adding some mineral oil or DOT 4 please do so. Its gonna be slippery this coming august. No brake means you might end up on the ground.
- Drivetrain : Go for a service if necessary. Shifting is important. We don't want any chain hopping while shifting ...... avoid mechanical breakdown !.
