Additional Info Fresh from the factory to a wintery maiden trail ride! Gotta admit I thought the "Plus Size" tires would ruin the handling and make the bike handle like a pig. To my surprise the bike actually climbs and descends very much like a regular ass mountain bike, it didn't feel slower going up or down. The big tires don't have me sold yet, but I'm intrigued and looking forward to testing them out some more. I'm really stoked to set this thing up with proper 29" wheels to see how that changes things. It's pretty cool to have the options this bike provides. Just when you think bikes cant get any better, Santa Cruz delivers once more.
