A lot depends on your style of riding. I don't own a 29er and am currently on a stumpy EVO 26" so take this for what it is worth. I would recommend the stumpy 29er or niner RIP9. I rode these and several other 29ers at outerbike and both were very very ... more »

The Good: Climbing, descending, jumping, everything
The Bad: None. This is a rad bike
Overall: Rode this in Moab, UT. It is super confidence inspiring. I felt like I could do anything on this bike. Climbs amazingly well and is a blast coming down in any type of terrain. 5' drop to flat and lots of rocks with absolutely no complaints. This is an awesome bike. It is a little slower than my stumpy EVO on flats and long climbs, but one of the funnest bikes I have ever ridden

The Good: Great amount of float. Easy to get in and out.
The Bad: Durability
Overall: These pedals have been great for the last year. I had a bad knee and this has helped a lot. They have a lot of float, but they only lasted me a year. CB will warranty it, but I have to send them in for them to fix the problem. That means weeks without a pedal... Four stars for performance. 2 stars for durability

The Good: Build is superb, geo is dialed!
The Bad: The fox 32 150mm travel is awesome, but the bike is capable of more. However, the 36 might be a bit much. *Note to Fox, start making a 34 for this bike:)
Overall: I don't specialize in one area of riding, but I have ridden for a long time. I've ridden and researched many bikes from HT 29er's to DH bikes. I climb up to ride down and favor more aggressive trail/AM riding. I have ridden everything from the White rim in a day to resorts and DH tracks. This bike does everything. While not a DH bike and not a XC race bike, it can do a little of both. It climbs amazingly well and makes riding so much fun coming down. This is my favorite bike I have ever ridden and shines on just about every situation in my everyday riding. Since I can only afford one bike, this is the one I would choose every time. Even if I could afford having more than one bike, I would still choose this every time.
