F***ing amazing answer. And +1 for saying "janky."
Well said, Cam.
I have an all original 1995 Humu (down to the tires) and if this rides anything like that…and it probably rides better…then it's a barrel of laughs. Makes you really appreciate the modern-day fully, too.
My condolences to Tim's family and friends.
Very well written article. Spot on, even if it did make me feel a little dated for still liking rock armouring. It's mostly bench cuts and berms and compromising with the forest rangers though. 🙂
First thing I did on my TR Bandit was to swap out the tires. Second was an upgrade from 160mm to 180mm discs. I had a dropper and saddle I could share from my Covert and had extra bars and stem lying around, but would have likely upgraded in that order if I hadn't. It didn't come with pedals so that was never an issue. After some time and frustration I ditched the Elixir brakes for some proper working Shimanos and replaced the budget SRAM cranks for some RF Turbines. Clearly the last two required dropping some cash and were long term upgrades. List is pretty spot on from my experience, Morgan.
"…and is still faster than what I would consider a Trail bike."
Nicely put. Thank you for not just relying on angles and weight to categorize it as one or the other.
Yup. Will be doing so in Norway.
Favourite on my browser. Then I can easily find the link to refer back to the article anytime I want.
This is sweet reading, Bryce! Thank you. Adding this straight to my favourites! 🙂
Although I would edit it a bit differently now, I guess this would count as the first one. Let's hope Morgan is up for another round in September.
Okay, it's the high score for riding that everyone's trying to beat. Got it. But don't get it (as in I don't see the point.)
So it's like people are competing with times…only on line? What is KOM?
I might be ignorant, but I like points 2, 4 and 5 anyway.
Uh, dudes? I think that's two levels.
Deepest condolences from Denmark. Very, very sad news to come home to. 🙁
