I have been riding this @rockymountainbicycles Altitude Rally Edition since two months now and today I felt confident enough to go for a @strava ride to test the bike in comparison to my last years Rocky Mountain Slayer Carbon 90. The feeling on the bike initially was quite similar as on the Slayer, specially when I ride it in the slackest position and with the long wheelbase option. Also the travel is quite similar with 170/160 (Altitude) and 170/170 (Slayer) and I even switched to a coil shock to make it more like the Slayer. Why? Because the Slayer was the best bike I‘ve ever had. Until today. I was significantly faster on the Altitude but still felt more in control. Mainly because the bike sticks to the ground like no other bike before. The grip seems to be endless – just when the trail gets flat I have to think about putting enough weight on the front wheel. This endless grip is, I guess, the result of the bike‘s geometry and the @suspensioncenter fork and shock tuning together. Anyway, this bike is a confidence booster! . #unitedbychrissports #lovetheride
