Blowing my own trumpet

lamote on supplejack

Okay so this isn't about blowing my own trumpet but more about proving Styli (the Santa Cruz distributor) wrong. See Styli lives in Nelson and Nelson has a tonne of switchbacks. Actually a tonne is an understatement. Anyway there's a a particular trail called Supplejack (which rules by the way) that has some really tight ones, so tight that Styli thought that a 29er couldn't make it round them all, especially my XL Tallboy. Now I don't like getting involved in the pro/con 29er debate, I just know I love my bike and that it fits. So this post is a bit of a friendly middle finger at Styli that an XL 29er can make every switchback on Supplejack (I have an impartial witness). Trumpet blown.
