|Jen's sick new ride - Specialized Women's first Full Suspension 29' "RUMOR"|
Ok, so the Rumor is so incredible. I cant stress how sexy, smooth, fast, light, and bad ass this bike is.
Rumor is just a beast over rocks, logs and roots. I was bracing my body, but it was unessasary since my bike road smoothly over obsticles.
I really felt like my riding skills went up 10 fold because of the geometry and design of the Rumor. One example was riding up steep slippery single track with logs to lift over. I thought forsure that I would have to dismount, but the Rumor was just a monster and ate the log for breakfast. Everytime I had an obsticle like that, I had it in my head that I couldn't do it, but then the Rumor suprised me by making it easy. So cool - I feel like a stronger rider after 2 rides.
Another rad component to my bike is a special button! YUP, I have a button that I push and my seat drops! For every down hill, I pushed my button and WHOOOSH! My seat was down and my butt was back behind and over my back wheel. Equally cool was b pushing the button again to pop up for when I need it up. Wicked feature - everyone is gonna want it.

Cheryl and Oliva happy to be MTBing.
I have to thank our hostess Olivia that took us up too some sweet single track in Santa Cruz.
The Trails were nappy, and had some puddles in some stretches - also, the track was super rooty and slippery! We enjoyed some amazing redwood trees that towered above us like giants!
Super fun with the ladies! I am so grateful for a such a great weekend of riding with incredible women on incredible bikes.
I came away from the riding with these ladies with one word.......................Strength.
I am Specialized.
