I'm debating which bike to keep and which to sell...
My 292 is a much heavier and longer bike, while its a plush ride, it can be a push to ride sometimes.
The Mt. Tam is much lighter and more nimble, due to the shorter wheelbase (and chainstay). I think it has a much better steering head angle for technical downhill runs as well.... I just feel much further forward on the 292.
Or should I just sell both and build a Karate Monkey with a White Bros fork???
My main beef with the Mt. Tam is that low bottom bracket, I'm constantly whacking my pedals on everything I normally clear with my 26" singlespeed (with 180 cranks). At least with the 'long travel' setting on the 292, I'm not plowing the trail everytime I ride.
I'm in Arizona and have to contend with rock gardens on a regular basis...
Any advice would be appreciated!
