Tucked in to the wide, flared drops, the Topstone descends with the security of a rollercoaster car, making the sketchiest drops far more relaxing. Venturing over sodden grassland and into rooty, slick mud woods, the bike found grip where it was limited and picked its way accurately through the mire — it didn’t collect much mud from its efforts either… It’s relatively inexpensive and specced in a way that doesn’t need upgrading. It’s not especially fast on the road, but comes alive when the tarmac ends.
