However, turned out the acceleration of the smaller riders was the most critical so in fact being lean is an advantage (at least on the more techy twisty trails).....but there is a limit I think, and it's more body mass than I have. I certainly find I'll loose the guys downhill if no-one is braking or pedalling. I have to really pedal sometimes to keep up whilst they are cruising.
