There are a lot of things in life, that if you change them you can't go back. This holds true in cycling especially.
My bike set up used to be a 26 in. single speed with a riser bar.
Now I am riding a 29er with a set of Jones Bars.
Today I took out my Desalvo. First thing I noticed was the bars. They felt totally alien to me. Even after 2 hours they just never felt comfortable.
I also noticed the way the bike rolled down the trail. My Spot 29er definitely rolls down the trail better and carries momentum a lot better.
I guess what I am trying to say is, I can't ride a 26 in. mountain bike anymore, maybe if it has a set of Jones bars but I don't think so.
I had been toying with the idea of selling my Desalvo, and now I think it might happen.
Rockin the 29 way,
