Bought the bike pre Hurricane Harvey and rode it everywhere after the flood. I love the way it handles, easy shifting gears, rides smooth even through knee high water, muddy trails and water logged grass. Light enough to lift over a highway median or a fallen tree.
I haven't ridden in a while and have gained a lot of weight, so I didn't feel my 26" trek fuel 80 would hold up........I'm not convinced 29" bikes are the way to go....I'm 5'6"" the handling sucks and peddling is a pain........just to be sure I replaced my rear shock on my 26"" to lock out shock it doesn't bottom out due to my weight and the peddling effort seems natural. Plus it is more responsive in the twisteys
The bike really is flawless beautiful ride & looks
