|Isn't she pretty?|
|The twins. Why do I always get black bikes?|
So I brought an Epic Marathon...OK a bit predictable but they are popular
Bike will be completely stock except for XTR pedals and I've swapped to Maxxis tyres today. Weighs in at about 11kG which is a good kilo off my old one. I've also ordered bigger front chain ring as I felt the 38x11 was a little on the small side. Gone for the 39x26 combo instead of 38x24
I've done nearly 1000km on it and I must say it's superb. Easier to get the same position as my road bike. A little higher of the ground takes some getting used to. Brakes are a little noisy with moisture on them. Wheels have take a hammering already in deep snow. Happy with my purchase and it feels oh so much faster. Much easier to ride up technical sections. I rode sections that I just could not do on my 26er and half way up I'm in disbelief that I'm still riding.
Looking forward to spending multiple days on it in sunny May !!!
