    Strength:

    Perfect bike for ex-roadies/xc riders that are swapping to baggies and flats. The twin loc is fantastic. It fundamentally changes the bike from full lock to full open. Nearly an xc machine in lock, an actual acceptable enduro bike in full open. Give up only a few percentage points in climbing to a spark or other xc machine and gain massive percentage points in ability to do drops, rocks, roots, boulders, enduro tracks. Can ride all day on this thing at nearly xc bike clip and then open up and dh wonderfully. Keep up or drop buddies on pivot, santa cruz, kona, etc. on dh and generally leading the way on the climbs with this.

    Weakness:

    None. Actually demo'ed the carbon version, honest to gosh prefer the aluminum. Maybe the extra weight or just couldn't get the shocks right, but the aluminum feels more planted everywhere on everything always. Some folks complain about crowded cockpit. If you used to use a front der., then the twinloc is no different to get used to. I use it constantly- open for roots, firm for smooth. Takes about two rides to figure it out.

    Strength:

    My first 29 bikes. i'm tall (1.94m) and these bikes give a great felling. it is 29 so it have to be heay but thet arn't so. I'ts 13.3 kg only and you feel it. The bikes get a great speed compare to my last 26 bikes. after years of 26 i became aware on any bump in the way but with these bikes you dont have to worry.They cross everything quietly without disturbing you to continue paddling. The twinlock system works perpect.It assits you in the paved road to ride like hardtail.

    Weakness:

    The tyres (Nobby Nic) . I live in a desrtly area in Israel. The tyres get punctures easly.

    They are big in size but they will make you fly.
