Here’s a race update on my first experience on the 429 SL … My first race was last Saturday in St. George Utah at the Cactus Hugger. A mix of double track and rocky technical climbs with several rock –drop type descents. What I noticed was how stable the bike was at every section and feature of the course. Even towards the end when I was getting tired, the bike went over obstacles that a lesser full suspension may have stopped dead in its tracks due to a more shallow suspension movement. I placed 4th and look to racing again at The Rumble at Road 18 in Grand Junction in a few weeks.
I’m 5’10” and ride a size medium in both the 429SL and the LES 29.
