    Sweet ride!


    Have you ridden many other hardtails. How does it compare?

    Well,

    My first bike was a Trek 850 so no real comparison there. The bike I can compare it to the most is my previous ride, which is a Manitou HT. Comparison wise, since Bradbury designed both of them, the ride feels similar, but the Tomac seems a little "faster" getting up to speed. Seems like when you start to pedal, you are up to speed in no time flat. Very nimble on the handling too.

    I'll have to give an update later as the rides (off the trainer anyway) have been limited as the weather is too cold here.
