Gulp! My candy ass may just walk that!
That's what concerns me most, not being able to test it out.  Heard a lot of good reviews.

Yeah I have read everything that is out there on the bike, it's just a little scary to purchase a bike I can't sit my butt on.  That is the one big...

Just shoot me if I ever lay out that much cake for a saddle.

Wife and I rode this after little rainbow, both of us really enjoyed this trail for it's speed and views....
I demoed one in your town of Salida and took it down cottonwood this week. What an eye opener! This bike made my old butt a better rider, not an easy thing to do. Told the wife after getting back that my present bike is up for sale and I'm getting an hd4!
