Rider Feedback

"I rented one of these bikes last summer to do a big multi-day ride with my friends in the high country. I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into, but the bike certainly looked fun, and seemed to fit me well. All I knew was that I certainly needed something better than my old hardtail for what we were going to be doing. By the end of day three, I was so tuned-in to this bike with the big tires, and felt surprisingly good (better than my buddies - I could tell) After that trip, I was convinced. I sold my hardtail and got a Hightower."
