First thing that stand out on the this bike are the fat tires. They really do smooth out the rough roads well. I think the Sequoia I had was a smoother frame but the tires on it (32) didn’t like the rough surface of the roads coming out of Rockyford. The shoulders are much smoother. The LHT though didn’t seem near as taxing on the rough roads as the Sequoia, and I'm sure it's because of the fat tires. While on the smooth shoulders though, the Sequoia is still a smoother ride.
Size feels good. Really good. It’s nice to be comfortably stretched out, but not reaching. Makes sense. Large person would be more comfortable on a large bicycle frame.
