I just got back from a mini-vacation to Eureka Springs AR. Took the Moto-lite to ride. (The primary reason for going!!!!) I just had to let ya'll know that this bike handled the Ozark Mtns a whole lot better than I did. If you have ever been there you already know about the leg scorching climbs. I admit that I did have to get off and push a little bit on Overlook Ridge and on Miners Rock trails, but this bike handled all of the technical parts as if it was born there. The downhills were fast and furious and extremely technical and I never did kiss the ground. The Juicy brakes never let me down although there were some sphincter puckering moments on the extremely steep downhills. This bike is capable of so much more than my skills would allow. I just had to let everyone know that I think this is probably the best bike made and I know that those on this forum would agree. I look forward to my next little journey with my Moto-lite.
