I am Not a Paid Consultant
I purchased my Mach 5.7 about 3 months ago. It was a gift to myself after completing 5 years of alimony. I was replacing an 11 year old Ellsworh Joker.
All my buddies have gulped the Kool-Aid and are on some sort of 29 inch bike. Not me, baby. I realize you make a 29er, but I don’t see what all the rage is with those things. “But you’ll be able to just roll over everything with a 29er.” Yeah. Yeah.
I really didn’t think that having a bike with this much travel and such improved geometry would make a difference in my climbing.
None of the wagon wheelers I ride with crush me on any climbs. At least none that aren’t super fit, in which I probably couldn’t beat them if I rode a lift up.
In fact I’m taking most of them on climbs and always on descents.
This bike rails on descents.
Congrats dudes! You have made a phenomenal bike and a very happy customer, one of many, I’m sure.
