    My new baby

    My new baby.

    I had my LBS swap the front derailleur to an X9 and go tubeless for the tires. I installed my carbon Bontrager Race bars and seat post.

    I love hardtail. I rode a Nishiki Pinnacle on and off for 10 years. Then I got my Gary Fisher HooKoo and now this. I could see having a FS if I lived in Colorado and did alot of downhill bombing, but I don't. For the once every 5 years or so that I do make it out west, a hardtail works great.
