    My first 27.5 Plus bike!

    Wanted to get a new bike since I wanted plus tires and a dropper seatpost. I have owned two 29ers previous to buying this bike and this one will accommodate 29 inch tires in the unlikely event that I do not like the smaller wheel size which I seriously doubt!

    Itís a Guerilla Gravity Trail Pistol with am MRP Ribbon Fork.

    Doh! That's right, now I remember discussing the bike with you. I'll blame it on old age.

    Several riders as well as a shop owner who all claimed it was just more fun to ride, more stable and a more cushioned ride. Iím older and riding for enjoyment and want to avoid future falls.

    And, this bike will accept 29 inch wheels so I could always revert back to a 29 er.
