What do you ride (type of terrain)? What's the intended use for your new bike?
I like to ride pretty much anything from flow to tech trails. I love riding steep, loose and fast singletrack.
What model and colour?
How tall are you? What size frame did you get? How does it fit you?
I am 5'5" and run a small frame. It fits perfect and delivers a playful ride.
What's your bike spec? Did you do anything custom?
I mulleted my Warden: 29 up front and 27.5 in the rear.

What do you love about your new bike?
I love this setup and it's my first mulleted bike. I’m super surprised how having a 29 wheel up front delivers a fast and stable ride while still being super playful in the rear (with the 27.5 wheel). I am beyond stoked with how my Warden performs.
