These are my first impressions with the 301, and I’ll have a more in-depth review in a number of weeks after I have spent some more quality time with it. In a nutshell, it’s stiff, stout and tough, and the very active suspension presented no wallowing and little pedal bob. This bike likes to be ridden fast and hammered hard, and it’s a joy to ride it in flowy and swoopy terrain. The well-made frame has a plethora of features, and it’s their attention to detail that set’s this bike apart from the competition. The highly engineered bike is an excellent package of technical designs and functionality, which works great in the real world.
Update: they released the following info at Eurobike about wheel sizing for 301.
