Loved the climbing ability
A pocket rocket, every nudge on the pedals means Go! If the ups are more important than the downs, you want a smooth ride over moderate terrain and have the skill to move when the terrain gets chunky, this is your bike. It wants to go fast. Most of the fun, point it at most anything personality of a trail bike, but far lighter and more maneuverable. Most of the speed of a true cross country racer, without the twitchy steering. Sound fun? The Ryve may be your bike. Way different than a Yeti SB115, which feels slower, but plusher. Honestly, this feels as efficient as my hardtail while climbing, but without getting shaken like a hardtail either up or down.
