I have to admit it climbs 100 percent better then my 2012 specialized stump jumper carbon Evo and that weighs in at 24 pounds
Yea see sometimes the old ones are just better arent they. There is a local trail here that has a big uphill and only one of my bikes will make it up the hill and its not any of my new bikes, its my 94 Univega that makes it up the hill every time. Newer bikes might be great but sometimes my old bikes can do what the new can do and then some.
I have thought about getting a new Carbon 650b wonder, but if it wont perform as well as my old steel rides whats the point right?!
