    On a VPS-3 or similarily set up bike with a high bottom bracket and a fairly slack head angle, DON'T
    raise the seat to try and ride like a cross country guy. Sure, you can do it for a while, but
    eventually, you'll try to corner like you used to, and wash the front end out. Twice. In one night.

    Then you'll get smart, remember that you should have a much lower centre of gravity, and lower the
    seat 3 or 4cm. Everything'll get better after that. No crashing. Better climbing, even.

    Yeesh, I'm sore.
