We are back at Markham for a demo day I’ve been looking forward to, Pivot is town and I’m getting my hands on a 429 Trail 27.5 plus.
The intention here isn’t to get a professional review of the bike, I’ll leave that to the pros, its more a chance for you to see the bike in action and get my opinion as just a regular rider.
Man is this bike fast. This seems like the perfect recipe for FL; great pedaling efficency, awesome traction from the plus tires and good descending capability. I realize I’m the odd man out here, I like bikes with a bit more travel even if that means sacrifing some of the things this bike does so well, but if you’re looking for a great all around bike that will manage anything FL can trow at it, go and test ride this thing, you will love it.
