I rode over to the Little Spokane River area just north of the Spokane Country Club and checked out the new bike on the trails. It rode great. I didn't have to worry about the front wheel coming up off the ground while riding up hill and when it did get steep enough to worry about it I had to stand up anyway. I can feel the difference in the "whippiness" compared to the other bike. When I powered down on the pedals on other bike it felt like it was going to run right out from under me. The new bike doesn't have that same feel but that's not a bad thing. It rocks.
Obligatory photo op in the wild.
Can't go this way.
