Here it finally is:
I really like Rider magazine. Even while they seem to be somewhat technically clueless, they do grab the riding vibe that infects me.
So what the hell am I talking about? I just received the latest issue and thought I'd pass it along. It basically mimicks my thoughts on the subject of which is better, a XC, SG, or Chiefton to a tee.
If you want a spacious cockpit that allows you to stretch out, has a taut suspension (i.e. it doesn't wallow during aggressive cornering), great frame (that doesn't flex during aggressive cornering) and good power, AND THE BIKE THAT FEELS THE MOST COMPETENT ON A WINDING ROAD, TAKE THE VICTORY!!!
If you want superficial BS, take one of the others.
Thank you for your honesty Rider, I'll be re-subscribing.
