Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I picked on of these up to replace my XC hardtail and what a race machine. While a hardtail is supposed to be the ultimate in efficiency, I was actually faster on this bike both up and down because of the continued contact between the tire and the trail. I've owned the SC Tallboy, the Pivot 429c, and the Trek Superfly 100 and this bike is hands down the best climber of the bunch. Downhill, the bumps felt a bit harsher than the other brands as the platform is designed for racing, but it didn't seem to slow me down (and its still faster than a hardtail).
I love to talk suspension and have owned or put serious miles on every XC 29er we sell so let me know if you have any questions or I can help with an order.- Adam 801-736-6396 x 5630 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
