The problem everyone is having right now is that there are no bike to try. You can't even test out the size M and size L in the parking lot let alone get a demo ride on the trail. There just aren't any bikes.

FWIW, I'm 5'10" with a 31.5 inseam and I ride the L. I think I have a long torso and short legs. I don't know, maybe I just like the feel of the L and because I couldn't compare that against a M I just bought it since it felt great after demoing it on every local trail I ride.

I like this bike more and more with each ride. Just riding on the sidewalk and the playground grassy hills with my 5 y/o daughter is fun.

If I had the cash I would certainly buy a Specialized Enduro for the days when I want something slacker and more plush but those days are few and far between and I think that's why the SB is so appealing.

Any other details on how it rides as a mullet vs straight 29?
I'd like to hear more about the mullet ride impressions too. I may try this out. Never ridden a mullet but my son has a 2020 Roscoe with 2.8 27.5 wheels and I could borrow his front so just need to pick up a rear wheel to test out mullet and full 27.5. Sounds like a fun experiment.

Has anyone come from an Evil Offering that could compare the two? Love how playful the Offering is, wonder if this is just as playful and climbs better?

I have a V2 Offering and im taking delivery of my new switchblade in the next week. Looking forward to comparing as the Offering is a really fun bike.
