Best next thing is get out and ride it, then work out if anything is holding you back other than fitness or technique.
I enjoy the riding but I also enjoy upgrading things whether it’s PCs or Home Cinema or Bikes. So I bought this Trance as a project for fiddling with as well. The chain was above 0.75 stretch, the seat had too much play, paintwork needed repairing etc.. all good fun
But your message is true and it has been ringing in my head lately
‘Ride more, tinker less!’
