Well, they restocked the Mason and low and behold, the new 2019 model is out. Specs look the same with a couple minor changes, most noticeably color and tires. Pulled the trigger on it. We’ll see how she rolls.
I’m not too worried about the bike keeping up with me. If I eventually start riding more aggressively than the bike can handle, I’d be impressed – and upgrade. Til then, I think this will do. Really appreciate the feedback folks. Thanks!
Thanks! I appreciate your feedback. I hear what you’re saying about the black runs. I don’t plan on ripping hard through any trails. I only mention blues and blacks because I have about 15 miles of trails within a mile of my house. Most of those are blues/blacks. But I’ll just take it easy on the rough ones. I’m in my early 40’s and I’m not getting any younger. 🙂
