oboe - should I sue?
nolo - the 3-way unity I understand, and I'm always trying to achieve it. but I can't help feeling the differences in any different version of a tool (bike, ski, golf club, fly rod) and feeling a new need to learn something new.
for example, the switch to K2 Axis X from Salomon X-Scream Series showed me how slightly different ski geometries and flex patterns require different amounts of pressure in different sequences. until I learn every conceivable permutation or adaptation, I still need my conversations with the tool.
it's even odder with bikes. I have a road bike and 3 mtn bikes. each of my mtn bikes rides entirely differently, even though each one is fine-tuned to fit me perfectly. they have different frame materials, different suspension forks, one is full-suspension, they all run different tires. the permutations there are endless. even though I'm a fairly decent skier, I'm a much more skilled mtn biker, and I still have lots to learn.
until I've learned it all, I'll keep having my conversations.
in mtn biking, usually I don't need an interpreter. but with skiing, I rely on yoda's wisdom to counter some of my bad intuitive responses.
