“I’ve always been attracted to the longer travel bikes, mainly because they do a good job of compensating for my mistakes.. (laughs) After riding the 5010, I realized that I didn’t have to sacrifice all of the quick handling and playfulness I wanted to get a bike capable enough for the front range. This thing is nimble, fast, and holds its own in the rough stuff.”
