The lightest HT you have access to.
the lightest HT you have that's not a cx bike.KERKOVEJ said:The lightest HT you have access to.
A Spearfish might be a great bike for endurance mtb events, but Leadville isn't rough enough that it would make a positive difference to have a FS vs HT. An Air9 (or similar lightweight HT 29er) w/ the right wheelset is about as good as you could ask for.happylandings said:I'm into Pb ville for the first time as well. I'm planning to ride my scandium Air9 at about 23.5 lbs although I'm really interested in the Spearfish as a possibility. I've never had a FS bike but I'm thinking it would lowere the rate of fatigue over that kind of course.
Come on, sometimes a guy just needs a bit of an excuse to treat himself to a new toy!heythorp said:I wouldn't be spending money for a PB100 specific bike, seems silly unless you are contending for an overall place.
I remember seeing a couple riders on downhill rigs when I did my first two in '04 and '05. They still finished, but near the end of the day.heythorp said:Ride what you like, a bike choice, unless you bring a 35lb down hill rig,
