Thats a big call coming from someone who grabs his crucifix every time he sees a dropper post operating.Let's just say he's not a natural born mountain biker. It's only been a month or so since I managed to convince him to lower his saddle and sacrifice a bit of leg extension in favour of a lower centre of gravity.
And that jump wasn't huge.
Hills are pretty steep out Cardy's way.He seems happy but two finger braking?
Sand makes hills...and wind can sometimes be an effective alternative. Honestly, going from the Mallee to somewhere with hills...we can't climb or descend but by golly we can pedal...Not when there isn't a lump remotely deserving of being called a "hill" within a 400km radius.....
I like the colour although tan seems to be a bit fashionable lately. In truth I don’t love the Deviate frame. It’s a good looking bike but only in XL and black. To my eyes anyway. Anything smaller than an XL they start to look a bit squished and the frame shape is a bit wonk because of the excessively low top tube. Don’t like any of the other HP frame shapes either except for the Acto5.
