    Thoughts on this...

    looking into getting a 26er or 29er to do some more dirt riding than my normal road trips. Not expecting to be doing anything super rough. saw this on the local CL. Do you think it's worth the price, and a decent ride for an off road n00b.

    The sus is the same as I run on my Ellsworth. No problems, completely adjustable without tools, unless you change the air in it.
