I fear I have developed a superiority complex because I see all other bikes, especially the $12,000 bling-bling road bikes, as ridiculous now. The impression I have is that if chased no one would ever catch me because I could just bunny hop over the curb and set off into woods before anyone even knew what happened. This bike screams capability.
LOVE my Thesis. It's really astonishing how fun it is to ride. The 650b wheels make it incredibly fun to shred fire roads and gravel, and the 700c wheels with 30mm tubeless tires are fast and make chip seal feel like glass. You guys have a winner. Love the bike, love the company, love the business model!
I've been playing bikes for over twenty years now. This bike inspires a mix of speed, fun and confidence I've never felt before. The capability is impressive to say the least. It's a true speed machine and by far the best road bike I’ve ever owned. The wider road slicks and disc brakes inspire a confidence I've never had when throwing a bike into turns and riding high-speed descents. I was nervous about the change to a 1x drivetrain, but the range and steps between the gears have proved perfect for all of my rides. I had high expectations for this bike, and I’m happy to say it has blown me away.
I just raced my XL OB1 at the Old Growth Classic here in Nor Cal. 52 miles of mixed dirt and granite trails with over 8k of climbing. The OB1 with its wide 1x11 gear range, flared bars, dropper post and 650b tires was perfect for this epic, hilly course. The bike climbed extremely well and the WTB byways tires rolled smoothly on paved sections, but it was on descents where this bike really shone. With my hands on the drops and the seat post down, I was able to hold a stable position at high speeds on extremely steep and loose surfaces. I completed the 52 mile course in just over 4 hours which was good enough to earn me a top 10 placing in my age group. This was definitely a day where I had the right tool for the job.
I’m a typical, skeptical mechanic. I’ve worked on and ridden every gimmicky bike in the book. I've never seen one this well thought out.
