29er HT Ride Review So Far...

By Brian - Posted on 19 June 2011

Thought I would give an update of how the new bike is going. Having never owned a hard tail before and been riding bikes with 120mm+ travel for the past few years it was a bit of a gamble going for what I did. After a bit of internet research, no test rides at all, I decided on the Agogo 29er HT. The reason I went for this one was purely I loved the way it looked and I thought that's as good of a reason for me to go for it Sticking out tongue

For me the things on this bike that I have never tried before were; no rear suspension, only 80mm travel at the front, 29er, flat bars, skinny 1.9 tyres so I knew I was in for a bit of a shock.

So far I've ridden, Awaba, Mt Annan, The Oaks Up & Back and Wingello clocking up around 9.5 hours ride time. I can't believe how well I've adapted to it and the only change I've made is go from one spacer below the stem to two. I have been taking it a bit easier while just getting use to the feed back from the trails and how it handles different tracks but so far I'm more than impressed.

Nice 1 one mate.

As new steeds go, those 29er HT's seem difficult to go past these days...
