Do you know how to adjust the B-Gap on your SRAM Eagle Drivetrain? It happens to be one of the most important adjustments you can make to have a drivetrain that shifts smooth as butter. Watch this SRAM Tech video to learn more.
Name: Angi Weston, owner/operator at Radical Roots MTB Instruction
Nickname: Smange, Mangi, Snack-Pack (I always have food with me)
Birthdate: April 12, 1982
Your ride: Transition Smuggler, Patrol, and PBJ
Favorite bike component:
My favorite component is Guide Brakes. I really like brakes with smooth, easy modulation and Guides excel at providing that control. Another important factor is a comfortable and easily adjustable brake lever to fit my small hands - the Guides do not disappoint. In my 15 years of coaching mountain bike skills I have found that many riders don't properly utilize their brakes, so, once they learn good braking techniques, and maybe even make adjustments to the lever position, they gain control and confidence which leads to riding faster and with more fun. It's true: Good brakes actually make you go fast!
Favorite place to ride:
My favorite place to ride is anywhere in the majestic Cascadia, specifically in and around Bellingham, WA.
What skill are you learning on your bike?
I am always working to jump bigger and corner faster because these are two skills that can always be improved upon and absolutely optimize my fun-having.
What important lesson has your bike taught you?
So many! But here are my top three: 1. Maintaining balance is crucial. 2. Anticipation serves you, so look ahead, make a plan, and be ready to execute. 3. Be patient with yourself and others it just makes life, and biking, much more enjoyable.
What does being a SRAM Women’s Program Ambassador mean to you?
Being a SRAM Women’s Program Ambassador means that I have a partner who shares in my mission to get more people, especially women and girls, riding and loving bikes. It also means that I get to be a part of our evolving sport and lend my knowledge, experience, and stoke with people in the mountain bike community.
