It's all that and much more!! I got mine put together and it rocks, took it out in the snow (only about an inch). It handles like a dream and the acceleration is unreal. I went from an old (don't laugh) 1996 Proflex full suspension to this..Like night and day baby. Completed my local loop in about 5 minutes faster despite ice and some huge mud bogs. I am so incredibly happy!

Hope you guys like your and if you are thinking about getting one, don't hesitate, they rock..

I only had an hour before I had to pick up my boys and I went to Lum's Pond..Not very challenging, but enough singletrack to be able to have fun. WCC will be coming soon, I love that place.

You might want to measure your reach, and go with the one that has the closest.

What size is it? What length crank arms are you using? And how is the toe overlap? I ride a 17 normally and I can't find a 29er that doesn't have really bad toe overlap.
I'm 6'0 240 lbs and my frame is the 18" with Stylo 175mm cranks, not sure about "toe overlap"...Never heard that used before. Did I happen to mention I love my bike? Since I rode I switched out my wheels for a pair of Bontrager 29-3 UST tires and now will be running tubeless.

Toe overlap is when you have your cranks level with the ground and you tow hits the wheel when you turn the bars. Its a big problem for people with small frames and big wheels. Its a really big reason I still use a 26" bike.

You may want to compare the Geometry of those 29ers to the Razzo. The ones you have used might be just a large version of a 26er. The Razzo is a true 29er Geometry.

I have an Idea don't speak of things you know nothing about. What the hell do you like a 29er is its a big 26" bike. And so you know I have tried 9er bikes. You don't get any closer the myth of true 29" geometry then that.

It would be nice if you didn't have to inject propaganda and BS in to every thread in this sub forum. I know your just trying to help. But this place doesn't have a good feel to it. And its mostly because of you.

I've got a medium frame for sale,with Fsa cranks and headset.I rode it single-speed with a surly singulator singlespeed adapter. Its super light and fast - but my Rip9 keeps calling me back.
