Wallace Looks for Hat Trick in Mongolia
@tjet thanks for the nice words but 'pure souls' does make a blush a bit! As for @Sontator's question, it is a valid question as it is very difficult to capture what the real experience is like in Mongolia (even though we do have great photographers and videographers!). The best people to answer that question are the athletes. Here is a response to this question from 2013 Racer, Mike from Australia on another comment feed: "Rob, pictures don't do the terrain justice. It's FAST yes, but when it's rocky it is sharp, and on long stages rough terrain takes a toll. a 35mm (or hey, 32mm) tyre on a rigid bike would be no fun, and not fast enough on the descents. We regularly pushed speeds towards 70km/h on the descents, which bring erosion ruts, broken vodka bottles, sand wash outs, G-outs and rocks up very quickly. I rode a very sharp handling 29er carbon HT with stiffly built ENVE wheels, and some days it did prevent constant pedalling, but the lower requirement for maintenance (hey, it's 30hrs of racing) over a FS was worth it. Having raced CX bikes for their purpose, plus in XCM races and general training, I think it would be a huge challenge to ride the MBC on one. a 29er HT with light fat tyres and a compliant (i.e. alloy rim) wheel is the ticket."

5010 or Tallboy LT would both work fine.

Tallboy LT would be fine. What do you mean by Solo?
