Aint that the truth. There is nothing quite like riding in the rain and heading down a trail as it suddenly drops over a steep hill while you apply every ounce of strength and weight you have to squeeze even the tiniest amount of braking force from drum brakes that have taken the day off as you fly down a slope with a sharp corner at the bottom. Those are memories best left in the past!
