It is nice to have all bikes matching and a bike for all occasions, surfaces, trails etc.
29er added into the mix to determine suitability. Testing undertaken over course of the weekend. The Bear would be impressed.
26er and 29er set up identically. Same groupset, tyres, geometry and measurements.
29er Flash out on the secret testing trail on Mount Ainslie. Huge wheels take a bit of getting used to visually. Riding it was a no brainer though.
Fresh coffee (thanks to Trev) to assist with the analysis of data that came back from testing.
