I have had this bike for about 6 months now and it is my first brand new bike and my first 29er so I am still getting used to how it rides. I have ridden every kind of trail you can think of including snow and so far I love the bike. It climbs like a champ and has actually done great in the technical spots. I am excited to hit up moab and see how it does on some steeper technical trails but so far it has been amazing on your slightly above average trails. It rolls over every thing and I took it off an 8ft drop and it held up awesome. The suspension has been amazing. I can feel the ABP go to work which I didnt think I would notice. I am an intermediate level rider and this bike has helped push my skill level. You can get up to big speeds and feel really secure on this bike. My hanger did break going down a rocky trail but that happens. I will eventually upgrade to lighter tires, going from a 26 to a 29 I was surprised at how much heavier the front felt at first, and I was on a 37lb kona before. Overall I am excited about this bike.
