Pros: The overall fit of the bike is great. the 29" wheels makes it feel more stable, and I like the lefty fork for it's easy to reach and handle lock-out and rebound setting. Mine came with X-7 shifters and drive train, Avid Juicy 3 brakes, and Kenda Nevegal 29" tires. WTB Wheels are OK as well.
Cons: none so far
Recommendation: It takes a little getting used to the bigger 29" wheels, but they do roll over everything. A little slower off the block, and slower on tight turns, but over all I like the fit and feel of this bike.
