My first experience in Mountainbiking… Up to here, I had only the cross bike with no suspension at all.
At that time the 29er (which was stolen two years later in Arica) was ordered but still missing. In fact, it only arrived three (!!) months later.
– Other airlines can be more stressful with carrying a bike: that time, I lost a lot of time!
+ Over about 1000m, the air gets very very dry, you need a lot to drink
+ First experience with “desalted” water which don’t help when you are thirsty
+ MTB on lava stone is fun… like skiing!
