This may not count, but I've ridden almost everything Houston has to offer on it.



// I've since yanked the rim stickers, added fenders & swapped out the saddle for a Brooks.
time for a trip to The Woodlands, dare I say Conroe?

Hellz yeah. If Bianchi made a "Houston" model it would be fat, slow & made of pot metal.

Is there much riding in T-dubs? I've ridden the cross bike at Memorial, Cypresswood & the Anthills (Terry Hershey). It nearly as fun as my Rockhopper 29er, but it'll get there quicker & get the job done.

Where this bike actually shines is on trails like the Buffalo Bayou Trail. I'm faster on the cross bike than on the 29er through there most days.

Alas, I live in Katy now & am hunting for trails. SFA SP is okay, but not spectacular.

This is a thread for fully rigid ss 29ers. Don't ruin it by posting a bike with a derailleur. I cannot stand looking at it (the derailleur).

Ahhh, which is why it made me happy when the Navy stationed me in Washington State. I hated the trails within an hour of NW Houston. I've got epic riding within 10min! :thumbsup:
