Rock it!

Purchased the RH for it's versatility. It is a 29 QR bike so I can use my (nice) gravel 700c wheel set for all around riding. When hitting the trails, wham! put on the original wheels. Put on clipless pedals, Jones Bar and soon a dropper. It's not a perfect gravel bike or the best shredding MTB but it should be a great all around go anywhere ride. Thanks specialized for the included torque wrench and bit set. Easy assembly.
