Bought the gold HT in Feb 2015. Run the battery flat every day its not raining. Just picked up a new 2015 samedi FS Race. Best of the best. Should have got the FS Gold or Race right from the start. I love moustashe now and one bike was not enough. The 2001 Marin Juniper Trail and the 2007 Marin Quad XLT 7.3 888 macharzzo 'pimped out' DH never seem to get ridden now as 21st century is here proper with the samedis. Will sell them. Credit card is maxed out.... turn Gold HT into road and trail bike by changing rons to hybrid road tyres with paniers to ride length of NZ national cycle trail from south to north of NZ. Will take race battery for longer distance between charges. Race FS for beutiful Rotorua Redwoods.. Best MTX park in NZ. (But only if everyone pays the club fees to keep it that way)
No drama though. All safe and sound. All under control. And she was riding a large frame bike, when she’d be better suited to a small - That was one I dodged, then.
Seriously though, I can see an unexpected benefit of these bikes is their ability to level-the-field in terms of enabling a group of disparate abilities (and fitness) to all have fun together.
For us, that’s a big deal because in the past mum has always been a bit of a laggard – not through lack of trying – and to now have our wheels turning closer together for more of the time adds chocolate sauce to the ice-cream experience.
“Keeping up with you two is soo easy now,” she said while idly cycling past us up ‘two-top’ hill. While polishing her nails. (I made the ‘polishing her nails’ bit up, to be honest). You get the idea though.
One last thing. You might be wondering how this high-spec full suspension mountain bike performs on gnarly trails, or technical descents - Who knows? Certainly not me.
I’ve hardly had a turn riding it since I got it home – I’ll prise it from the fingers of the family soon though, and I’ll let you know.
