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! :-)

I'm new to this area, but I'd like to at least test ride my next bike. I'm looking at 160mm bikes, so the Covert is in the top 3. The problem I'm running into is riding one to test ride, and prolly a small (I'm 5'4", so I think I'm definitely a small). Does anyone know of anyone in the Bay Area tha ... Read More »

looking to buy a covert need sizing help

This is a tough one , I [B]should[/B] ride a large, but I like my bikes small. I'm 6'2" 195lbs so that puts me in the large bike sizing, but I just don't feel comfortable on a large. I have a medium tr450, and a long double (1st gen). I recently broke my intense slopestyle (medium) and nee ... Read More »

I'm going out to Moab this fall to ride the White Rim with some buddies and will need to rent a bike. The place we're renting from (Chile Pepper Bikes) has Turner, Giant and Transition 29ers. I've ridden a Giant 29 before and loved it, but wanted to try something different. I've heard good things ... Read More »

Covert 29 drivetrain question

Hey I had a question about my crankset/shifter combo. I was running an XO double crankset w/XO 2x Gripshift before and everything shifted fine up front. I ended up swapping the crankset to another bike so I decided to use an old XT crankset for the Covert, it's setup with 24/38 rings. My shop got me ... Read More »

Also, what's the little crossover cable guide for? If anyone could provide me with some pics of their setup I'd really appreciate it or else ... Read More »
