|Milwaukee Bicycle Company 29"er|
This bike is detailed out now on Twenty Nine Inches so I won't go all techy here, but this bike seems to be one of those bikes that makes you want to ride fast.
We were discussing this at work, how a carbon bike will feel stiff, efficient, and fast, but a good steel bike seems to be more. More "what" is the question, but it is definitely more fun to ride a nicely designed steel bike than a carbon one, most of the time. Of course, it is hard to deny that a super light weight build going up a climb feels nice, but I don't know...... It's hard to describe it. Probably this Milwaukee rig and the first Lynskey Ridgeline are the funnest, most grin inducing single speeds going up that I have ever thrown a leg over. Springy? Gives something back?
Who can really put it into words, I don't know, and I haven't read anything on a steel frame that makes me say, "Yeah! That's it!"
Maybe someday someone will capture it in words, but for now, it is time to ride!
