A friend of mine was riding up Fromme, on his 29er single speed, and apparrently a few arrogant A-holes were telling him his bike was not designed for the Shore, while they were PUSHING their bikes up. This guy rides the SHore all the time on his 29er, actually he races in the SS worldcup or whatever it is. HE can ride most trails on his SS on the Shore. It's too bad the clowns pushing their bikes up ,couldn't keep up to a guy on a SS clipped in climbing and descending seventh. He and his wife have done BBY mountain and Fromme, and Seymour in one Saturday.
NEver judge a rider by what he rides.
