Remember when mountain bikes just looked fast? Now, the faster they go, it seems, the more they look like pigs. But not this 29er Firefly. It’s been years since I thought about my hardtail titanium Litespeed (the Ocoee? no, it was another model…), but the beautiful, ultra-clean lines of this Firefly brought back memories of riding something that looked fast, felt fast, and railed fast. From the internal cable routing to the Gates belt drive matched with XTR cranks and the gorgeous seat stays, the Firefly is an exercise in pleasing the eye and slipping down the trail like an arrow.
