Proof is in the pudding.

Or, at least in the video.

I'm really enjoying what 29+ wheels and tires bring to the table--control and confidence--especially now that I have a proper FS chassis with modern geo to ride them on.

See?




Steep and chunky, doable but committing, I've ridden the drop-in to Horsethief Bench a few dozen times, but never as easily or as in-control as on this day last week. Credit 29+ with providing that control. 

Current iteration of the bike is a Manitou Magnum Pro 120mm fork up front, LenzSport Behemoth frame with RockShox Monarch RT3 DebonAir shock providing 110mm travel out back, Derby XC 35mm carbon rims with Surly Dirt Wizard 29+ tires at 10.25psi up front and 14.5psi out back.

Most capable and surefooted mountain bike I know how to imagine, and the proof is right here in video form.

Thanks to Jeny for grabbing the clip!
