You sold me on them. After a couple hundred miles I'm thoroughly happy with them. The California drought stricken trails in SLO are dishing out the abuse and these Breakouts are handling it great.

When I first heard Specialized was integrating tube, pump, and tool compartments into the frame, and already being one who forgoes a pack whenever possible, I started drooling over the concept. Now that I see it implemented, I really want one of these. Well done Specialized.

It looks like the fork matches the secondary orange that surrounds the more prominent color on the front triangle. At first glance I thought the same though.

sidewall stability is probably my biggest complaint with the narrower rims. I had a hard time finding a pressure that let the tire deform properly at the contact patch, while not feeding back from the rear wheel in even shallow turns. I could probably find a pressure that works, but my frame actually will work with the full size rims front & back, so I'm more inclined to throw 29er wheels back on until I can build a scraper rear wheel to go with the front(provided I like how it rides better with the scraper, which I at least have one wheel to test with.)
