Iíve been dreaming about 29erís for 2.5 years, and although had the green-light to buy at any time, I didnít quite feel compelled to jump in yet. Due to an in-progress warranty issue with my main 26er, I begin test riding 29ers while my 26er is down.
After test riding a rental 429 for ~6 hours over a recent weekend, I decided that the 429 was the right fit for what I wanted in the 29er format. So I called Pivot the next morning to ask a few questions and see about availability of the 429 in the size/color I wantedóno availability on new orders until around March 2011 (Iím mentally preparing to wait until then to get what I wanted).
I tell my wife the bad news over a phone call that morning while weíre at work, and within 15 minutes after hanging up the phone, she has found the size/color I wanted at a bike shop within ~3 hr drive from where we live, and put the bike on hold for me.
End of the story is that my wife feels like a hero since she was so resourceful and found the bike I wanted so fast, and Iím riding a new black X0 429 and really enjoying it!
