Rode the bike on Tuesday. It rips. There are a few things that I absolutely loved... NEVER EVER ANY TOE HITTING THE FRONT WHEEL. Boom. That was a big win. Disc breaks are amazing. My Voodoo (1998) did not have them so that in itself if a huge win for me. How the bike handles - it loves to be leaned and stays stable. It almost feels like the long wheelbase turns sharper in conjunction with the slack angle/trail/whatever geo they use. Climbing was way better than I expected as was the traction climbing.
I have 44cm bars on with the 50mm stem and strongly considering bumping out to 46cm on the small frame. Anyone else running ultra wide bars on their bike?
