Slayer is such a sick bike! demoed it in the don this week, despite some less than optimal tuning (loose headset that almost killed me off a jump) i was blown away by its handling….funny thing was though it felt like i was going down faster than i ever had, upon checking strava at end of run, i had no fastest times down, but plenty of pb climbs! the last one up to loblaws was 20 seconds faster than #2….still cant wrap my head around it, felt like a magic machine!
-question, as someone whos never been to blue, im
planning to head out next week, I have a 2016 remedy and expect it to handle my mild needs on the hill, ive ridden whistler a few times on a full on dh rental, will remedy be capable enough for blue? I know i can make it work and have a blast, just not sure how gnar blue can get….
I’m def going to try and get up a few times this year.
I’m thinking I might use my Santacruz Blur XC… not much travel but I got the big tires on this one. Hopefully it’ll hold up! And if that doesn’t go so well or I get dropped, I might rent.
