Just wouldn't like to be in the gnarlys, hundreds (or BIG hundreds) of KMs from anything, to discover what the unknown weak points are. Best to do that close to home.
That, in my mind, currently excludes it as a dualsport of choice.
Above all, when I'm on a big KM ride, I want reliability. (Shit will happen regardless... Why be the guinea pig?)
Could be, this bike will prove to have everything I've wanted. In the meantime, I'll stick with what I know.
(Or maybe I'll get it for local runs until it's proven itself.! )
Oh wait, I don't do local runs.
