More testing with Bon Jovi

29er Articles Main Mountain Biking

Over the Thanksgiving weekend Art and I decided to do some riding and testing and kicking assing. Yes…assing. So Art got some sweet photos of me pretending to be hardcore. Well, I actually don’t have to pretend because I’m already all hardcore and stuff. In fact it was quite the opposite, I had to turn down my hardcoreness and keep it at a minimum. So the photos below shows how fun it is to ride the Titus Rockstar and I’m trying to demonstrate how nimble it is.

But first, I have to pee!

Ok let’s get down to the nitty gritty. I’ve built up Bon Jovi to ride more like a train/enduro bike, thus the super wide bars. As they say…Elbows Out…side to side…lean like a cholo. In this case, I’m dressed like one too!

I like this action shot of my fantastically firm calves. Oh yeah, the bike looks great too!

For some reason, when I am doing anything aggressive on the bike I make a duck face…

The wider bars allow me to have more leverage and better control of the bike. You really should try getting wider bars and a shorter stem. This is especially helpful when you have short arms like I do.

So far I’m really loving Bon Jovi. This bike is wicked fun and I’ve been itching to take him through some downhill courses at Fontana just to see how well he’d do.
