I had to send my new TALAS off to Fox for repairs. My buddy loaned me his new Float since his bike is not built. This set me up for this past weekend's enduro ride up in Idyllwid, CA. 60 plus miles with 55% singletrack and the rest fire road and about 9000 plus feet climbing. Sufferfest indeed but the bike was amazing. I may be on to something here with the 29lb 160mm travel endurance bike. I keep seeing comments by people saying "160mm travel is too much for a 650b". Idiots I say. Sherwood obviously knows something
Once again, the bike climbs very very well. Since I was on a Float the fork was set in 160mm all day. I never found the front of the bike to be too steep. Idyllwild has a lot of rock and drops so the fun factor was there for me on this bike. Maybe I am finding the bike to be so good all around due to the semi custom for me? I really like the 24 inch TT. It gives a perfect balance for me for climbing and descending. Not a big charge for level 1 custom and so worth it.
Sorry for another rambling about the Zeus. I know there have been request for reviews so just adding some color. Solid bike for sure.
