After a last minute change of plan/heart, and reading that the Marin was nearly 32lbs as standard, I have managed to track down a shop that will take my voucher and obtain a trek stache 5 in my size ......boom, trigger pulled :0)
Ever since I saw the krampus in 2012, I have wanted/been trying to justify a 29+ rigid bike, and no matter what the industry is telling me with all this 650+ stuff, for now, this is an itch that needs scratching! And scratch the bugger I will! I pick it up around the 8th of November, all being well, and will give it a jolly good seeing to over the course of the following 4 days!
@BareNecessities I tried to get the 7th off work to pick this up and get down to epping for its maiden voyage, but there is no chance :0(... Next time though, and I'll have it dialled in by then :0)
