My old bike's front fork was busted twice, and the wheel set was going out as well, so I made the decision to get a new-used one. Then magic happened, a listing popped up and it was more bike than I can ever ask for, for a price below my budget. So I grabbed before everyone else(had to muscle my way through) and it is simply fantastic. Coming from an old 2010 26" geometry to this new 27.5, I am way late in the game but I never wanted to chase the spec race. Still, very confidence-inspiring. So I call this the honey-moon period. Gotta take more artsy photos of it before it gets banged up like the old one!
