    Evolution:








    Things were very similar in 2007, but then again; very different.

    That looks great. What size?
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    I took the new bike for a short test/setup ride yesterday, and it was like coming home!



    Of course there are a few tweaks to make on the suspension and riding position, but that's natural. This bike is just perfect! Lovely, plush suspension (Had to dial in a little LSC on the Pike to kill the worst brake dive, but that was expected.) and as quick and responsive as anything this burly. I really love the long front center geometry as well. I'm really, really happy with this. I was a little uncertain about the short 50mm stem, and I have a 70mm to try as well, but the front end didn't really feel too light when climbing, the bike felt nice and stable and the cockpit didn't feel short at all, so I might just leave it.

    I'm so glad I didn't fall for the temptation to try a modern "virtual pivot" rear linkage, because this is fantastic! I can't say I noticed any pedal bob or anything like that anyway, but I guess we're all different. (I'm running both dampers fully open with just an appropriate amount of rebound and as I said; a little LSC on the front end.)

    Thanks, Sherwood!

    Small update. New cranks and wheels since the previous pics. Still not so much traffic in here that a couple of vanity shots from a stoked owner should offend anyone.

    Thanks. Yeah. Why use wimpy brakes. 200mm up front and 180 in the rear. The brakes are Formula RO, and man, do they work!
