caved and got one of the new stumpjumpers. went with the comp alloy 29 - kinda bummed they don’t do an alloy model with a nicer fork, but oh well. the rhythm should be fine for me and the rest of the spec is exactly what it needs to be.
either way, stoked to go right into dipping my toes in enduro racing. was gonna go for it in stroudsburg on sunday, but 5 days of straight rain leading up to race day has me thinking that’ll be a no-go. probably for the best to give myself a few weeks to learn on the bike before pushing limits.
anyway, what ya’ll like for gear? i’ll just be half-shelling and wearing knee pads, but i’m in the market for those as well as new baggies.
