Thanks for letting get some time on the 29er Paka Wallup.* I thought it felt quite plush, more like a FS than a soft-tail.* It really was a comfortable ride and loads o' fun.* It seems to be able to climb whatever the rider can handle, I could feel additional traction whenever I put a little more weight on the rear tire.* The 45" wheelbase handles*well for my slowpoke speeds, my B29er has a 44" wheelbase, works fine for me.* It felt very smooth going over a series of roots on Rovers Run, I don't know why anyone would need more travel for XC-type riding.* Overall, I think this is a winner.* Thanks again for letting me take it out, if its still available I'll do it again.

Sincerely,

Thanks Mike for another report. It seems that folks are leaning toward the softy design over the full boinger. I'm voting for a redesign to get a shorter wheelbase and smaller sizes. The bike is here for the taking if anyone wants to try it. Cheers, pat
