Does the bike really matter?
I took part in the TwentyFour12 last weekend on my lowly 2006 Rockhopper. Now what I'm curious about is whether it really makes that much difference what bike you are on when it comes down to it. I was knocking out some average times but then some other guys on all carbon race machines were only doing the same times. Sure there were a few people going past me like I was in reverse but on the whole I was doing ok. So I was wondering what peoples opinion would be as to the difference in bike. If I were riding say and Anthem Advanced instead of the Rockhopper, what do people who have had a similar experience think?
