Great trip to Fruita and Moab with my brother. We were accompanied by 3 CDS bikes (HSS road, Cross set up for Road and the 29er) and my Specialized FSR Pro 26″.
I road my 29er exclusively and it held up great and performed flawlessly. I have say some of the climbs had me reevaluating my 1×10 set up, but I still had a great time. I am running 2.4 Continental X- King and Mountain Kings currently and the added volume really creates a plush ride. They are a bit slower on the climbs, but adds a ton of confidence on the descents and in the corners. Plus, I usually destroy anything I ride in Fruita/Moab and it was nice to have a bit more buffer room.
A bit of a glorified video of some fun shredding on the trails.
