Of all the places I've traveled, RΓ©union island takes the cake for the most inspiring scenery. From 8000ft volcanic peaks, lush rainforest, pumice fields, all the way down to beautiful beaches. This was a trip of a lifetime! Honored and grateful for the opportunity to take part. Thanks Shimano-MTB, Anthill Films and a rad crew for making it happen. πŸ€˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ‡·πŸ‡ͺ

Been playing around with frame sizes a lot lately, and to be honest it's a struggle that I continue with.. (*insert, worlds smallest violin).. I'm so particular about the characteristics I want from a bike, and there are benefits to both.. But for me, I like to throw the bike around and play with the trail more.. So, I lean more towards a smaller bike.. Having said that, I also like certain characteristics of the Large... Sooooo I built up two identical Norco Bicycles Sight 29ers (M & L) to work out what works best for me. I've been riding these two bikes back to back for the last 6 weeks. Also altering the front end with fork offset and stem length, to split the sizes somewhat and fine tune the handling. Final verdict? Not yet, still tweaking.. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜¬..
