It's been a LONG LONG time since I've ridden a Specialized.
Not since 2002 - and the reason I got the Specialized ENDURO Compy was I made the fatal mistake of test riding one in London while 'standing by', bombing it down the stairs of Liverpool Street Station onto Bishopsgate to get enough of thrill of singletrack to make the impulse purchase.
From there I took the cheapest flight I could find to Geneva - rode it to Les Gets / Morzine where I camped up on the hill, ate baguettes with nutella and rode the Portes du Soleil VTT for a week. Quite possibly one of the best bikecations I've taken.
For all their proprietary BS and brand kerfuffles over the past years, this video is a breath of fresh air. Nice job.
Kyle's Santa Cruz TALLBOY. There is no excuse for going slow up AND definitely down trail on this dual suspension 'XC' shredder.
