You can flip them links to get it lower and slacker.
Sorry I am not seeing it, all I see is a Giant Faith
Just kidding, those things are awesome. Did you flip the links on it? Solid build, Congrats
Now I'm working on a video. But i depends on my friend and his trusty mac to edit my quicktime files.
Coming soon a super sick dh video from patagonian rider for ya all
here a link to my pinkbike album: http://brokenelbow.pinkbike.com/album/old-photos/ check it.
nice, thats a solid bike that has never gotten enough respect.
Agreed, I was bummed to see it pulled out of Giant lineup
Never feelt the need to flip the links. The bike is low and slack enought for me and the terrain that i ride. Riding rocky courses i bent a set of hussefelt 175mm craks cuz is too low , now im on 170mm and it is perfect. I never otugh tat 5mm would make so much diff.
thanks for the props
And the frame is lighter than the glory!!!! but strong as it.
Amiel cavalier won the junior world champ at livigno on a faith. If it was good for him it is more than good for an amateur like me
and is in this freshwater where i chill after a riding day
Looks fast and fun!
Where are you located?
is that Patagonia, Argentina?
Thats what I figured but patagonia is like half the country. I ask cause I'm going to be there in a month or so, probably hanging around Bariloche, and I'd love to get clued in to some good riding while I'm there.
I live in a town called Esquel in the Chubut province.
It is 300km to the south from Bariloche. but I ride in the hole Anidina region.
I would suggest a road trip incluiding (from north to south): San Martin de los andes, Villa la Angostura (the DH-4X argentinan open is held in there 24-25feb), then Bariloche, Bolson, Esquel.
I got some North-american friends living in Bolson. They shuttle in Piltri mountain almost every day (8minutes dh course). My friend name is Shea. contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cool man, we haven't really pinned down the dates yet and my lady is more interested in riding horses than bikes but I imagine I'll get a day of shuttling in there somewhere. Gonna have to rent a bike which blows. What should I expect to pay to for a rental/guide in the Bariloche area?
Dude my friend got a big portion of land, and his father had recently finshed building a lodge there. He has some horses for rent too and the wildest mountain to ride them too.
Bikes for rent..... only in bariloche.... i think they got UMF freddys in catedral ski center. Dont know how much they charge for them but im sure is less than 25 dollas daily.
my mail is : email@example.com anything that you need to know drop me an email.
