Sadly, I have not had a chance to get it out in the mtns.
They were all covered in snow and mud; didnt want to be an A$$ and go destroy the trails. Then, I got sick...almost over it though.
But, from my initial parking lot ride, it is exactly what I was looking for; soft off the top and ramps up nice. Coming from a long line of trail bikes, but most recently a SC Hightower. Will post more after I get out.
Dang, that's good. What other bikes have you ridden and how does the RB compare? I'm torn between this and some other carbon 29ers for my next bike.Thanks! It weighs 30.7lbs. Nothing on the bike is particularly light so I'm pleased with that. The only carbon bit on the bike is the handlebar.
Picked up my Ridgeback today. Wanted to run a DB inline but they don't make the size so I'm going to try to collect the parts and build it tomorrow.
Yo where are the pics??Provisional build with a clapped out fox 34 up front and a fox float rear shock (all I could find in the configuration) came in 30lb 2oz with a Sella Anatomica for fat boys saddle. Having a new boost front Hadley/Velocity wheel built to fit new the Helm fork. So far loving the bike on Sedona trails, hoping to love it more with the new front end.
