Two Niner Test Ride in Canmore

Took out the 2009 Cannondale Caffeine 29'er today for a spin in Canmore and fell madly in love. At just over 26 lbs it felt very stout and able to loose some poundage with an upgrade to better cranks, and seatpost/bar combo. That Lefty is always a bit trippy when you haven't ridden one in a while but it rode beautifully. They do a SS version as well but the colour isn't quite is hot as this. I am lovin this thing. Upgrade cranks to a light Truvativ and run it as a 1x9 would be the shiznit. The only thing that was bizarre was it had what felt like a three foot wide bar on it. Crazy. I'm spending too much time on my fixie and forgetting what MTB bars are actually supposed to be like.
