Morewood Kwela 29
Picked this bike up for testing yesterday. I have a long trip I'm planning in Sept. and I am putting a few miles on a few different models.
This is the first 29er I've ridden and what a fantastic mount. Plus, and for me this is a big plus, it's unusual. I love bikes that you don't see everyday.
My only question is how the stiffness of this frame would make me feel after 100 miles of pavement?
There would be mods made as well. Change the fork out for a rigid, change the drivetrain (tester was set up as a 1x10) add a rack and some bags.
My next tester is an On * One Indbred Ti. It's just a 26 but I'm still excited about it.
And I've just got add this in- If anyone is interested in some of these lesser known but superb brands, Peter and Lewis at Unreal are super great guys to deal with and they sell brands that are hard to find in the States like Commencal, On One, Titus, Morewood, and Grammo.
