Reply To: XC Race Bike


Yes, the Honzo is a sexy bike, kind of leaning towards Kona. My only worry is….I’m pretty stupid, even at 47, I’ll ride a slacked out fun bike like a fool. I think maybe the XC route was my feeble attempt to keep myself from getting hurt(it takes a long time to heal these days). My thinking, that if I purchased a purpose built XC only rig it would force me to stay tame. I dunno how hard I ride(it’s not that difficult to chew the Altus components on the HardRock up)…strong legs, small lungs & more desire than skill. I bought the HR thinking it was a descent bike(it was in ’88) things have changed a lot. I’m goin to take my time on this, I rushed into the last purchase.
