My new winter Ride !

Looking forward to exploring some of the trails with my new ride. This should be more fun than my old GT triple triangle mountain bike.

Just a big step up from the old steel GT triple triangle I've been rolling with. It's a 29+ and I'm going to try it without studs and see how it goes.

was thinking everything is hard as a rock but I'll bet there will be some sticky crunchy top layers to provide some grip
