I don't even really know where to start. We could go over the ride / performance first, since that's likely why you're looking at this. It's near perfect - the only void being left unfilled for the bike of the future, not yet made, using what steel can deliver. The geometry is legendary - perfect road snap for cutting corners, and angles that make singletrack feel like you're tracing a line with a sharpie. Easy, nimble, and aggressively confidence inspiring. The bike feels alive, like it's along for the ride with you. It's just fun. I've never ridden a bike with this much personality. 725 is perfect for this bike - the Enve fork matched with whatever hoops you want to throw on it - have changed the way I ride. I ride this bike for all my rides. My daily city spins (asphalt/mixed), my weekend long rides (asphalt, long climbs), and with a wheel switch to 40s, I've recently bike packed with this bike - feeling the same confidence and speed, fully loaded with gear, flying up chunky logging roads. I can't say enough good things about the ride quality. Feels like a magic carpet, feels dialed. The ONLY thing to note here. It's not a 15lbs super-six-evo. But it's not supposed to be. It lacks a touch of acceleration, if you're chasing an attack - but it makes up for that in strong top-speed. Honestly I can't believe we're talking about speed, with this bike, but hey, it delivers. Looks: lol it looks so good. RItte in general: These dudes are real people, and real riders. Elijah gave me the greatest customer service I've ever experienced. Something this personal would make you think I was spending $12K on a custom geo. From lightening fast turnaround, to calling me to talk components, and geometry, Elijah helped me out, and communicated everything, every step of the way. When I had HUB issues, he sent videos so I could repair, then, ultimately got me a new HUB, all with full communication. You are going to get your dream bike worry free. Get this bike, I know you kinda want it. Send it.
