    Assembly and Initial Opinion

    The Good:

    Bike comes with some great components. Hayes Hydraulic Brakes RockShox with remote Lockout Priced lower than most other mid-range models (bought for $671 on amazon.com, the $499 price is for last year's model)

    The Bad:

    Shifting doesn't seem as smooth as I would expect with 30-spds Stock seat not very comfortable, even for shorter urban rides (To be expected I guess) Had to pre-load the front fork to the max in order to get desired stiffness in the lock-out feature

    Overall Review:

    Assembly was pretty straight forward on this 29er. My first experience with disc brakes, front-suspension and a 29er. I am impressed by the braking feel and power and rolling over curbs, roots, etc. with these 29" is awesome. The front-suspension seems to leave al ittle to be desired as the lock-out feature requires a full pre-load to obtain the stiffness. For the price I was unable to find a comparable bike as far as components and quality of brand were concerned.
