The weather in Boulder this weekend was amazing and it was my first chance to get out on my new whip. This thing is so much fun. I’ve grown less enamored with road riding over the years, but there are still times when it’s easier to sneak out for a quick ride on the flats rather than a full-on mountain bike adventure. I wanted a bike that could handle dirt with relative ease, but not feel like a drag on the occasional bought of pavement. The @mattercycles WolfBeard is definitely that bike.
Once I got used to riding with drops again, I had to keep reminding myself that this wasn’t actually a mountain bike. I pushed it pretty hard on some dirt trails you would never want to take a road bike on and didn’t find the edge. It handles really well when things get rowdy, but is really comfortable to ride when I’m back on the road. I’m already jonesing for more time on this bike… hopefully I can sneak out later this week.
