The trip to Arizona was shortly after I picked up my new bike in the fall. I go there a lot to ride when the weather is not so good here in Seattle. My best friend Chris lives west of town in the Tucson Mountains so we often cross over Gates Pass and ride on the rolling hills and flats out there. One of our favorite rides is to go all the way out to Silver Bell Mine well west of town.
The new bike performed wonderfully. Packing and unpacking was easy and fast but needs to be done carefully to avoid scratches. The ride and handling were outstanding. And without a doubt, this is the most comfortable bike I’ve ever been on. To me, it feels like my effort is not wasted on frame flex but gets directly into the drives train and onto the road. I was able to ride longer with more comfort than ever before.
