Roy arrived safely in the states, picked up his bike and is off to ride the mountains of West Virginia and North Carolina where the weather is a fair bit warmer than in Ohio right now.
He seems pleased with the outcome...interested to hear his feedback after riding the 650's and the additions of the bar/stem combo and ti seat post. The design should retain the familiar handling and position with improved momentum/rollover and a bit more comfort.
Hope he has loads of fun.
A quick update from the petrol sation at Bluefield
The bike rides amazing, must be one of the most agile 650B's on the planet! did most of the trails at MT Wood and got familiar with the Eastern Wood kinda riding, 99% singletrack and technical short but steep downhills......... and climbs (Gary's Grind was a killer),
We're heading to Statesville to visit First Flight now and will do the trails at New River Gorge on the way back
Thanks again for all the hospitability, see you soon (Monday or Tuesday
we forgot the cable to connect the camera..... so pics later (But yep,..... it's DIRTY
