First Ride: Rocky Mountain Maiden
Darkstar- I think that it's NOT TOO EARLY TO TELL. I'm not judging the bike from the numbers, geo etc. Exact quote from the article: "As easy as it was to corner and perform quick direction changes, the Maiden has a ground hugging feel, and I found myself more likely to carve or manual from one side of the trail to another rather than jumping. When I did take flight the bike felt well balanced and predictable, but a little more 'oomph' was required to get airborne than I'd expected. " I think it tells U everything about the bike which turned out to be less fun than Mike expected. And I'm pretty sure that Mike didn't presume that Maiden is a straight racing machine.

OK, correct me if I'm wrong... 4 years of development and the end game is very nice looking bike that can come to a insane 10,500$ price tag, which turned out to be neither the race machine nor the bike park shredder? Costs more than carbon S-Works Demo 8, but it seems to be not so "speed encouraging", fast and stable and on the other hand rider it's not as fun a nimble as Session Park, Kona Operator etc.? Don\t get me wrong, it looks dope, but am I the only one who gets the impression that it's just a "good downhill rig" and nothing more?

@Voxran, pardon my French, you're absolutely right, that's 650b operating Operator that has been operated by Connor... :)

Connor is back to 26 inches with the Operator, that proto frame was 27'5 but it was not a Precept, it was just a test mule. I think that Kona's going to get Fearon a 27,5 Operator soon, maybe even sooner. :)

I really don't like the guy... But I seriously respect him, he's not my friend, I don't follow him on facebook, twitter etc., but from what I've seen- his riding speaks for himself. Cheers

No idea who's better at whipping- R-Dog or Connor.. Impressive skill, if only Fearon could get more amplitude on that one I'm sure it would be very, very tight comp. :) Cheers!
