Trying to find something reasonably priced here in the north east has been a real challenge!

In very soft sand, you would need to think about reducing tire pressure but for fire roads, gravel, jeep trails....the G will do great!

Don't be afraid of the G's ability to handle the road. She can handle just about anything you can throw at her. Her capabilities are often underestimated.
Great, that's what I wanted to hear. I've test ridden 2 over the last year and found it to be a fun bike on the road, but didn't have a chance to try any trails. At 53 I won't be tearing up the single track as I once did but may get a little frisky from time to time!
