I recently posted questions about unit vs inbred vs km. I would also like to throw the Soma Juice 29er in the mix. Weighing in at 5.06 lbs its fairly light and I like the simplicity of the horizontal dropouts. The price is around $430. Question is how does it ride? Does the km climb better with a shorter chainstay? Is anyone riding one?
Thanks,
Eric

I just got off of mine and I'm a very happy camper. I mated mine up to the On-One fork and things ride quite nice both in the twisty and the rocky bombin stuff. I think that the first batch is all gone though so you may want to call around to see if you can get your hands on the size you need. I'm 6'2" and the 18" fits like I like with a 400mm seatpost.

I've only got a couple of rides on mine, but I think it climbs as well as a KM, with alot lower stand-over. My XL weighed 5.25# and the final build was just under 26#. I could easily loose a couple lbs just changing tires and a couple other parts. As you know the KM comes with a fork, but you can get the Juice and a KM fork for about the same money. It's well worth a look.
