Or is that an oxymoron?
Early this year bought my first mtn bike, a hardtail 29er, the Gary Fisher Cobia. I'm loving the trails! But, this bike is... a sled. As in 'Lead Sled'.
I'm lusting for better overall performance, especially in acceleration and sustained speed. Is this possible with a custom 9er, like a carbon Curtlo? Or, any mtn bike, for that matter?
