What is Vee favorite model and why?
Vee preferred 27.5” wheels until he rode the Trail 429. Now, this 29er is his favorite bike. “It is very snappy, responsive and poppy. I point it where I want to go, and it moves like a rocket ship.” He says. “I’ve taken it to steep/rocky DH trails, Cross Country rides, Alpine Epics, Bike Parks and everywhere in between. I like a shorter travel bike and prefer to have control over the bike rather than being a passenger. I like the feel of the trail, without it being muted from too much suspension - that’s why I chose the Pivot Trail 429.”
Vee’s Trail 429 is built with our XX1 build and XTR brakes. “I chose this build because I knew this bike would be my 99% percent bike,” he says. “I wanted an everyday trail bike that could handle steep descents as well. Also, the bling factor. I mean, gold?! Yes, please.”
His favorite ride on the Trail 429 so far has been on Downieville’s Big Boulder to Third Divide. “Those two trails are amazing,” says Vee. “Add it to your bucket list. Over 1 ½ hours of pure downhill, singletrack, wide open bliss in one run!”
