taking a reader poll
big debate for mathon nationals - which bike? riding for speedgoat has given me some options as i can ride any bike in the speedgoat stable.
and with lots of climbing, some rocks (nothing too major) and some high speed decents, bike choice is going to be key.
salsa el mariachi - super light climbing bike with no suspension. full rigid ride - light and snappy. will be a huge advantage going up, disadvantage going down.
speedgoat asylum - full suspension sweetness. weight difference is minimal due to the super high end part setup. going up will be a disadvantage compared to the salsa, going down it will be the best bike overall.
moots mootoX - soft tail ride. component setup overall is new, but not the lightest, and weight range comes inbetween the asylum and the el mariachi. best compromise frame-wise for this course by far.
