    2012 Marlin at Flatwoods in Tampa.

    Perfect weather on Thanksgiving. It was the first ride with a carbon bar, it felt like I needed to maintain less of a death grip on the bar going over the bumpy stuff. New pedals too, Wellgo MG-1s, I should've changed out the stock ones a loooong time ago.

    Have you never seen a garmin? Its a speed and cadence sensor in 1 unit. Gps based speed is crap. Also allows readings on trainer for those of us whi actually train.

    My statement implies that speed and cadence are coming from the same sensor.
    If I've never seen a Garmin, how would I recognize one just from the sensor and mount? Sounds a lot more like I've seen many, many Garmins.
    Don't even get me started on trainers, and even worse, using 29ers on trainers.

    Frame just came in tonight and got it built up for a neighborhood shakedown. True test will be tomorrow on the night ride. Not real crazy about gripshift but we will see how that goes, in the mean time I'm just happy to be off my hardtail for a little while.

    I never rode grip shift and my wife wanted grip shift and after tooling around on her bike it is pretty nice. I don't think you will be dissapointed at all. Trim on the front, easy to roll up or down several gears at a time on the rear. Probably shifts better under load when going to larger sprocket in rear, etc.

    That's a Garmin mount - it transmits both speed and cadence from the rear wheel. I'm a masher, not a spinner, so cadence is the last thing on my mind

    Post Pictures of your 29er-uploadfromtaptalk1354577807589.jpgmy first mtb. Went straight to a 29er. Bought the frame and fork cheap then built her up from the parts bin, ebay and craigslist. Slx cranks shifters and cassette, xt fd and rd. Wtb laser tcs trail wheels. She built up to 27lbs even with that piece of crap fork. Will learn to ride some offroad and look to replace frame and fork with chinese carbon and tower pro

    You ride a 12' Mamba? Black mamba - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You are bad@$$!

    Does it roll (or should I say slide) better than a 29er?

    All joking aside, good looking rig, ride on!

    Advantages:
    1. If you put your bike on a trainer, you still get speed (and cadence)
    2. More accurate mileage/speed readings.
    3. No interference/adjustment issues when removing the front wheel for transport.
    Disadvantages-none that I am aware of.
    In regards to #2 above; on all 2 wheel vehicles (I guess I would have to except the Segway) the front wheel always travels further than the rear wheel unless you always go completely straight. On a curvy course the cumulative error adds up. In local testing we have done it amounts to the difference of 7.20 to 7.32 on our local curvy course with 2.2 29er tires.
    The rear is just off in the other direction, the mid-point would be the actual, IMO.

    The rear actually takes the actual distance traveled by the bike compared to the front that always travels further.
