You'll regret your purist attitude on the uphills, against the wind, being chased by a bear, when you gotta pee.

I finally did a real ride, 3.5 hours, on the new beast. It felt like cheating. The 29" wheels rolled over everything. The suspension was set up a little soft but did not mess with the climbs. I put a little more air in it when I got back to the truck. It is easy to over steer with the wider bars and I need to learn the width of the bike for those speeder chase situations. The bike began to disappear under me. Hydraulic brakes are amazing. They are always there with a feather light touch. There are a couple steep creek bed crossing we do and the slightly slacker head tube and larger wheels made them a breeze. very much mud.

Sound like a guy that traded his VW for a Caddy.
