    “No clowning around with this fast 29er!!”

    The Good: This bike is great for singletrack, XC racing and just cruising down the bike path.. The roadies give me funny looks when I pass them up. This bike is surprisingly light too. I may try a Century this summer, 30-50 milers every weekend with no complaints.. The bike is really fast and since i have broad shoulders i love the wide handlebars. I weigh 235lbs at 5'10" I do alot of weightlifting and I wanted a fitness bike, however after researching things and numerous test rides I went with the 2012 XTC 29er 2. I added some Straightline flat pedals with a pair of Five Tens I have no problems no being clipped in... I love the versatility of this bike with the bigger ring you can really fly and I am a little stretched out on my medium frame.. It was funny because my brother has a Trek FX and he said were are you going to ride it. I just said it is a Mountain Bike! Anywhere. Well we do have a great trail 15 minutes away in Crosby, Mn. called Cuyuna MTB trail that is a blast...

    The Bad: I haven't found any weakness in this bike and would recommend it to any friend.

    Overall Review: After getting this 29er and riding it I no longer desire a road bike... It's just too much fun off road!!
