Country Mountain Bike
This bike can handle both the rough
and the smooth. With the forks locked out it is very responsive and
not dissimilar to a road bike yet let the forks absorb shock and its
amazing what you can ride over. I have owned a Marin Mount Vision
for several years and enjoyed its full suspension, that was until I
test rode this. A weekend in the Peaks proved that a well thought
out hard tail is as much fun as a full susser. Yet it can handle and
climb oh so much sweeter. A week in Sierra Nevada just reinforced
this further. Needless to say I recently sold the Mount Vision. Yes
the Mount Vision was good but this suits me so much better.
I have been asked in recent months
to recommend full suspension bikes for XC, in the past I could
happily name a few to look out for. Now I struggle not to tell
others of my Burls XC.
