I am really enjoying this bike, I got it as my "do it all" and so far I have no regrets. The bike climbs great with very little pedal bob. In fact I was out on a group ride the other day, and a friend of mine wanted to try and climb with it. He is an xc rider only who has never been on a 6in travel bike, and the first thing he said when he got to the top was that he could not get over how little bob the bike had. I have my drievtrain set up 1x10 with a 30t wolftooth,11/36 rear.Ride report please!
I was using a Specialized Enduro before this bike. With the Enduro I always had to run high air pressure in the rear to get it to pedal well. Even with the high psi I always felt the bike would really wallow in its travel. Don't get me wrong Specialized makes a good bike in fact I still own a couple of their bikes. I have just been really happy with the way the Roam rides, it just feels really solid which I like because I am about 190 and tend to be hard on equipment.Thanks for the report, looking forward to hearing more about the bike.
Can you compere it to any other AM bike you might have ridden?
