    Stole my kids bike today

    Now that the temps have dropped he wont ride it. Sooo I did. 29er SS was pretty fun to fool around on for an hour or two. It had been a long time since I have been on a hardtail or a SS. What a huge diff from my Flux and Spot........ technology is a beautiful thing.Riding his simple bike really makes me appreciate mine.

    Hard to believe so much fun can be had on a $400 dollar bike. My knees are not having so much fun at the moment. I think the older I get the more I love my Turners or at least my body does.

    Reality check,
    You can have so much fun on any bike,
    But then again,
    All depends on what kind of fun you are looking at
    When trails gets tougher, Just stand up and deliver.

    How much climbing was on your ride today?

    I'll admit to being soft as h3ll, but I could never get my head around SS when I lived in CA and any/every ride involved 1500+ft of climbing. Seemed inevitable that I'd blow my knees or lungs trying. Change the scenery to mid-Michigan, and a rigid SS 29er has become my go-to bike for everything local unless I'm looking to session man-made features.

    Any chance this plants the seed for a Sultan? I know my Raleigh XXIX has.

    Sultan is #1 on my wish list but selling a XL blinged out 5 spot has been harder than you would think. In regards to the climbing in my hood......Western Colo.....nuff said.

    That was my guess from your pictures . . . no way I could muscle a SS up the climbs out there unless the gearing was stupidly low. Hats off to ya!
