First ride out on it this morning...it flys! I guess its the weight of the bike but I find that it accelerates really well, unlike some reviews of 29ers. I also find climbing a lot easier and when you want to coast it seems to roll forever! Add to that the less bumpy ride and I am a happy camper! I even managed to pretty much get rid of the howling brakes as well lol. I couldn't take any action shots as I was on my own but here's a couple of it in its natural habitat!

Really really like that Doug.. and love it when people are happy with their ride. I've yet to try a 29er but the whole idea of bigger wheels makes sense........ I bet it gets a shift on on the trails and eats the bumps 8)
