    I had the bike out for its first ride today. I couldn't push it as hard as I wanted with snow and wet leaves on the trail but it felt good. I know this sounds like a smart ass remark, but it rides like a lighter, stiffer, faster evolve. They give you 2 options for the internal cable routing. One lets you run full length housing and is super easy to set up. The other more refined way with interrupted housing takes some patience but nowhere near as bad as a Niner. This is my first Rock Shock since the mid 90's and I love how the fork felt and I am glad I opted out of the Fox. The AM classic Wheels are flawless and very light. The Woodman 134 gram seat post scares me a bit but I will see how it holds up. I will run thinner, lighter tires in the summer, I don't need 2.35's but they were what I had in stock at the time so I tried them. I have been riding my 34 pound fat bike for the last 6 or 7 weeks waiting for this bike to come in, and getting on this bike after that made me feel super human. I am a spoiled bike shop guy who gets to ride almost everything out there and I have never been this impressed by a first ride.

    I rode my Evolve C for the first time today and bike is awesome. Enjoyed it more than the Epiphany, Evolution, and Evolve AL.

    Gotta love the Christmas season...
