Overall Review:

Got this bike as first 29 er after demoing tallboy long travel carbon. This bike oat like a sixth of at bike but still does justas good a job. I like locking out suspension for climbs fire roadscandvpavement. The giants don't even have lockout. This bikealsodoes fine in the twists. Just gotta maneuver it. Liked better than tallboy cause it was a better, size. Got the 20 inch. Sc rep thank you but the xl u put me on was a little too big combined with 29 er. No joy. This ones perfect. Also climbing while standing is like on a hardtail cause of lockout. The giants and specialized must not climb the greatest if u can't lockout the maestro suspension Read More »

Also climbing while standing is like on a hardtail cause of lockout. The giants and specialized must not climb the greatest if u can't lockout the maestro suspension and it starts getting bad pedal bob when u stand. Of course when locked out u need to climb like on a hardtail to keep traction to rear wheel!
