First ride on GUni

First 'real' ride on the 29er Guni, what a weird experience! Definitely going to take me a few weeks to tame this

EDIT: Image removed until I can fix the size...

Weird is an understatement. I couldnt ride it all at first. But then again, I forgot that iI was essentially trying to power and keep balance a 54"
The 1st gear was nearly easy to get used to.

Yeah, I'm pretty much used to the Schlumpf's weirdness now (I can shift both ways without too much drama, and barely even notice the play in the pedals) but the weird part for me is, I'll pedal quick on the high gear and get my legs used to it, then I'll drop to the low gear and basically lose it because my legs are pushing FAR too hard, making me feel like I'm back to that time of learning to ride when your arse won't stay planted

Then I'll get used to the low gear, try shifting up again and go through the whole process in reverse!
