Back on FS and Lovin' It!

10 Oct 2015 03:44

For my last season of racing I went back to a hardtail, albeit with 29" wheels (Scott Scale 910). As a retirement gift, my LBS sponsor gave me the bike so I rode it for two more years. I just got a 2016 Scott Spark 910 full boinger...oh yah, I'm having a blast! :D My old body is thanking me already! :D

I rode that bike when I was test riding a ton. A real standout! I really liked the ability to tune the suspension from the cockpit. Would he's been very happy with that one. Congrats and enjoy! FS is so good now, you gotta love it.

The first FS I spent any real time on was a pre-production GF Sugar (several version actually). I had just stepped away from the Trek grassroots team and the GF guys asked me if I wanted to do a little R&D (riding and destroying) on their new FS XC rig (actually the first one I rode had Klein stickers on it). After a few years of Sugars and getting a "real" job (no more being full time racer trash), I got a Yeti ASR-SL demo deal (that bike and I never got along). Then I hooked up with a long-time friend LBS and started a relationship that is better than I could ever hope for. I've had a few Giant Anthems, a few Scott Sparks, and then back to hard tail Scale like I explained above. Obviously its impossible to compare the Sugars to my new Spark, but yah, FS is so good now.
