Our good friends at MPORA (where you can watch our Ask a Mechanic video series) shared this video with us featuring Santa Cruz Syndicate rider, and mountain biking legend, Steve Peat exploring the Scottish highlands. Getting out on the bike when it is wet, or cold can be a challenge, but Peaty knows that it is always worth the effort.
Of course, having the right gear goes a long way towards making these conditions enjoyable. A waterproof jacket, waterproof gloves, and a MarshGuard are at the top of this gear list. Now get out there! Mountain bikes are supposed to be dirty!
