My "ugly" new 29er FS bike…
It kinda looks like a Carrera.
Was expecting worse!
the neighbours won’t thank you for using that tyre on the turbo’…
Hehe, Turbo is the shop’s. This won’t be going on the turbo.
I like it. Shame about the white forks Just looks like a bike, really nice colour.
Personally, I really think the white forks suit it much better than the black ones.
Just looks like a Trek, but a bit more generic. Hardly ugly.
In the grand scheme of things, that’s a compliment! It pretty much looks like a 29er version of the Fuel EX, but slightly swoopier frame lines and a shorter back end.
Wot no dropper?
Debating to put it on this, or the Sync just now. Both have a rigid post in right now, will make my mind up soon.Posted 4 years agoscott_mcavennie2Member
When I was 18 I sliced my leg open climbing out of a girl’s B&B window in Torquay at 4.30 am before dropping around 15 feet to a concrete floor, spraining my ankle quite badly. In absolute agony, and covered in blood I ever so quietly tip toed off down the street, terrified that she might wake up.
She was better looking than this bike.Posted 4 years ago
Loving the short arse comments! I’m 6 inches taller (it’s a medium sized frame) than a certain T-Mo and she seems to do alright on a 29er!
The good thing about a bike, unlike a ugly girl is that you can’t see it when you are riding.
Too true! Less social stigma owning up to riding an ugly bike too. Besides, everyone knows the fat/ugly ones are usually a better ride! 😉Posted 4 years ago
Finally rode it today for the first time…
All initial signs point to good. Aside from slight teething troubles with front mech not shifting properly (my fault, should have given it a road test first) the bike rides really well. Feels a lot like the Kona 29er HT it has replaced, only with 4″ of efficient suspension on the back.
Best way to describe the bike is that it feels fast and efficient like the 26″ version, but a lot less flightly. It’s certainly short and chuckable for a 29er (I’ve ridden 26″ bikes that feel more barge like) and the angles and geometry feel pretty spot on. 120mm fork up front hasn’t slackened it too much at all, and it feels just about stable enough on the descents, but still agile enough for the very tight twisties.Posted 3 years ago
