    429C at Interbike?

    So was there a 429C at the Dirt Demo? Ride reports are pretty slim this year.

    Additionally, will there be a 429C to demo at Outerbike?

    Thanks!

    Yes 429C

    I rode the 429 C first thing on Monday- I am not a xc guy or a niner guy but the thing was fast fast fast and really really nice looking. It was a bit on harsh side on the Bootleg chucky rocks. But man it was stiff, the spidly 32 fork was not good, way flexy.

    Rode the 5.7 C- Perefct trail bike really handled well but once again why the whimpy 32 on such a stiff and capable bike??? Pivot let get it right here, How about at least a 34 set at 150mm????

    Both bikes are very well made great looking and rode pretty nice. 32 forks are weaksause

    I rode one for a lap. I loved it. Loved it enough to want to trade in the Tallboy for it. It was kinda fun too...about the 34, it can only be spaced as low as 130mm. Waay too much for this bike. Everything would go out of whack.

    I am immune to your disdain.
