    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    Does this make Aaron Gwin 0 for 2 races with Specialized? Bootleg, and now Fontana. Both losses were to bigger wheels.

    Now that Santa Cruz is selling 27.5" Bronson, which is sure to have a big impact in the market, who will be next? Spesh, Trek or Giant?

    The Southridge DH races have a couple of short drops followed by a long pedaling XC type section. No surprise that a 29er won.

    Very interesting, but I want to see some consistancy first. One race here and there doesn't cut it for me.

    My gut feeling (perhaps stupidity) say all 3 will be in for 2014 or possibly earlier. Lets see what Sea Otter brings.

    I've got a new conversion to play with so I'll sit on the sidelines to see how this is gonna play out....for awhile anyway....or I'll just get a 29'er....or??? A new 650 Mojo HD with the Ripley's eccentric pivots would be sweet. That is a very clever and compact design.

    Confession time. I just ordered a Tall Boy c. Still havevmy Jamis 650b2 for a trail bike. I just wasn't thrilled with the 2013 27.5" trailbike offerings All the 5" bikes were too heavy for my taste. Don't need to spend $5k on another 30lbs trailbike.

    So I went with a svelte XC 29'er.

    Yeah, I kinda saw that one coming. Very cool DWT and really look forward to see how you like it. What's the eta and is it an entire bike or frame only?

    No confession yet from me but I think we've discussed it in some PM's. Pics will follow in a few weeks.
