Thoughts on the XXIX.

I have been spending a lot of time on the new bike lately, and overall I am completely jazzed about it.  Here are a few thoughts…

After riding the Surly ICT, it is amazing how light the XXIX feels.  Sure it is heavy for some, but being under 30lbs is amazingly light for any bike of mine!  I now love having the option of a “light” bike to roll on single track.

Component wise, everything is working like it should.  The Fox fork is great, as expected.  Shimano discs are great as well.  A few changes that I would like to make sooner than later would be cockpit related.  New bars, grips, and seat, and I would be pretty happy with this set up.  At some point too, new wheels, as these seem a bit cheap.  But overall, this bike has been a good time.
