I even put a tiny stem on it and basically handed it off to my 13 yr old.
I ride everything short of lift-served on mine and could do that as well if I avoided the drops and really wanted to stretch it. Enduro bikes are great for going downhill but the thought of pedaling a 30lb rig uphill is anathema to this weight weenie. My Large EVO is under 22lbs (though I did bin the dropper post).

I never enjoyed descend in mtb or road. I only like the pain of climbing. though older now the pain is greater

I miss the 997 carpet. Nicer than 991. (But not too plush/shaggy a-la 70ies 930).

You know I noticed that too. 991 carpet feels cheaper than 997, hmm. Bastards!
