    Bend Riders - Can I try your 120-140mm travel 29er? Esp. Bandit29 or Satori

    I live in Bend and am probably going to upgrade to a bigger travel 29er. I'm currently on a Superlight29 and am looking real hard at the Kona Satori and Transition Bandit 29. Both have near identical geo and seem to get very similar reviews. They're a lot of bike for around here but as long as they don't pedal too bad they'd be a lot of fun too, and great for when i visit other, gnarlier areas.

    I'd like to try them out, or something similar, but there are no demos of these models available likely. Does anybody have one and want to go riding with me?

    Also, i'd be interested to ride most any 29er with comparable travel (125mm+) just for a general feel of that category of bike. A stumpy or TBLT would be interesting. Horse ridge is riding pretty well right now! Of course you could ride my bike which is a pretty good bike. Built with Fox, XT, Formula.

    Oops, should have mentioned, I'm 6' tall and ride a size XL superlight (although I should have gotten a Large).

    I could ride a medium for the sake of a demo, but probably not a small.

    Maybe if you try real hard you can stretch out that frame you've got so it fits wagon wheels, then i'm all over it :-)
