    New SPOT SS 29er (x-post from 29 board)

    New Spot 29er SS arrived and it rocks!

    First off I have to give super mad props to Michael G and the crew at Spot. I called up with a special request on a VERY short time budget and they came through with flying colors. I won't go into all the details (don't want to set a precedent for future customer expectations) but they were awesome.

    Michael took plenty of time to go over the sizing and geometry design of the frame. Got to chose some extra customs (cable stops were I wanted them, disc & canti mounts etc). Requested to have the frame by a certain time and they delivered. Michael went way beyond what I would consider normal to keep his word on delivery. I would highly recommend the spot to anyone considering a 29er.

    Built the bike up and hit the trail for a test drive and it rides incredible. I've ridden a few 29ers before (KM, IF etc) and I have to say I like the Spot the best. Craftmanship is great, paint is great, nothing but positives.

    The bike handles really well. It doesn't feel any bigger, slower etc than my 26" I'm sold. Look for a one of a kind Cove HJ SS frame in the classifieds in the near future. I'm never going back.

    I'm off to Snowshoe for the 24 hr race (team "one gear more beer" /duo). I'll post more pics, ride & race report when I return.

    Cheers

    Nice bike, but who's the dork holding it?

    See you and the bike tomorrow at Snowshoe!

    BTW, that's a Kelly fork.
