Bought a bike today. A full-suspension, 29er -- the Mach 429 by Pivot Cycles.
Riding it on the Underwood Trails and some other, off-piste singletrack on the Hillside today gave me the same thrill as the first time I rode a mtn bike in the 80s: a bike that can go anywhere, do anything. And it climbs better than my out of shape legs.
It is simply the sweetest bike I have ever ridden.
Can't wait to do some wild rides.
