Strengths:    Solid, stiff and super capable. I'm running an X01 drivetrain with a pike up front. I opted to have a bottomless token in the pike to make the front end a little more progressive to match up with the float X. It took a bit of tinkering to get the right pressures and settings for my riding, but i think i have absolutely nailed this now. this bike is just awe inspiring when pointed downhill, it feels balanced and poised in the air and just loves being pushed. without a doubt the best bike i have ridden or owned. love it.

Weaknesses:    Leg power is required going uphill ha, however it is still very good considering its travel and weight 30.15lb with vaults on (frame size Large).

Bottom Line:   
Love it, Catergorically awesome, simply the boss! :-)

Covert 29-er size question

I own a Bandit 29-er, and a TransAm 29-er both in size L. Now I'm actually thinking of getting a Covert 29-er too, but I'm a bit troubled about the size. The TransAm has a reach of 419mm/16.5", and an effective top tube length of 608mm/23.9". The Bandit has a reach of 436mm/17.1", and an effect ... Read More »
