Pricing is impressively reasonable. It’s not cheap, but riders who know components and where we’ve come from will realize that these kinds of bikes cost double this just a couple years ago.
This is a lot of bike indeed. But if you have the terrain and the spirit, then why not? Suspension travel is a luxury that can save your body when you get in over your head or run out of talent. And at under 30 pounds with an efficient pedaling platform, what’s to lose?
