Today was my first ride on the new SPOT 29er. I was joined by Bill Doh and Lwebb. We hit White Clay / Middle Run for a couple of hours. I have to say this bike is better than I anticipated. I thought it would be a little sluggish but it was just the opposite, it handles the tight twisty stuff like a dream. I am also a big fan of thr Rock Shox Reba fork, It is the stiffest fork I have ever ridden. The 29er takes a little to get it rolling but once it's movving look out. I thought it climbed well too. It didn't feel slow and heavy at all. Coming from a super light Ti bike I expected to notice the extra weight but it wasn't a factor. I can't wait to test it in the rocks, hopefully this Saturday.
Well thanks for reading,
