    Strengths:    Amazing handling, well balanced, strong brakes, supple suspension, suspension lockout

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    I have been looking at upgrading to a 29er for awhile. Lots of research and test rides. I finally pulled the trigger on this Scott Genius 930.
    This is the nicest trailbike I have ridden. I am a clyde 6'1" 265lbs and pretty hard on my equipment. This 930 Genius has a stout frame that holds my girth pretty well. The bike is very laterally rigid. I was really surprised how strong the SLX brakes felt as well. The suspension lockout is a really nice feature. I flip the switch once and shorten the travel for the rear suspension for fast curvy trails. Flip it again on a long straight section to lock both forks out. Flip the switch again and I have supple full suspension. The handling is very good and not too much different from my 26s. I can change the mount on my rear shock to steepen the frontend and heighten the bottom bracket to make her even more responsive. I was able to use the old handling turn in cues/feel of my old 26 with this 29er because she handles so nicely. The rear shock and front fork have much closer tolerances so I can run lower pressures. In my old Specialized Enduro, I ran the rear shock at 255-270lbs and the front at 125lbs. This bike I run the back at 225lbs and the front at 90lbs. Overall I am extremely impressed with this bike. Huge thanks to Leroy for the recommendation. Can't wait to put the miles on at Carter Rd!

    Strengths:    stiff frame design, wants to be ridden fast. very solid component package for the money, the brakes are powerful. lightweight considering what kind of bike it is. cable routing for dropper seatpost (including reverb stealth) ISCG-5 mounts.

    Weaknesses:    the wheels are not the reason for the just under $4k pricetag. tubeless tires but not wheels? id rather have you knock 50 bucks off the price then force me to buy cheap pedals

    Bottom Line:   
    the cost is in a solid frame and component spec, not in what people say is cool to have on your bike. the wheels are good but not great, but any seasoned rider is going to upgrade to something nicer so why cheap out components or raise the price to spec better wheels that are still not going to compare to what your going to buy later anyway.
