Default Not fast enough? but Is there a way that I can feel more comfterble in the trails?

     

I find that when i go for a ride with my friends, there always ahead of me by alot.

i know that I just started two months ago, but Is there a way that I can feel more comfterble in the trails?

And I always feel like my front tire is gonna slip and im gonna crash ( when I try to go faster, to catch up with them. )

They say that they put it on like the 4-5 gear, and im only on the 3, sometimes 4. I dont know how they can drive like that in our trails back here.. There not soo good ..

Not certain but, you might try looking further down the trail...If your looking down right at where you are...that's just where you'll be!

Riding time and experience will ad speed. Confidence is a wonderful thing and that only comes from experience.

You could also check your chassis settings. Set your sag, experiment with fork height and clickers. Maybe the bike just isn't balanced.

Have you had the shock & forks valved & sprung for your weight?

What type of front tire are you running? How much tire pressure?

All thing to consider!

Seat time is the best thing you can do to get better. Look where you want to go, watch your buddies to see how they get through tricky spots.

this is a sport of practice and push. once you have enough practice riding, then you have to push yourself past the limits.
