I have been trying to get some pictures over to you, but life is just so busy. It took awhile to build up the 29er, but I finally did a couple months ago.
Summer riding is over so I thought I would chime in for the owner's gallery. I expect there are a number of folks out there like me who have been on carbon and titanium wonder bikes, but miss that first nice steel bike they had. The bike that would take them everywhere fast and in comfort. A bike that when pointed downhill was calm and collected. That is what I wanted and Carl delivered it. The steel gives a smooth, yet springy, lively ride. The fit allows me to ride all day without my neck and shoulders aching. The geometry and build makes for a bike that has given me a lot of confidence when I descend so that going down hills is fun again. Thank-you Carl and Loretta. I am having a ball.
