I am new to mountainbiking, but have experience with motocross. Given this, I love the responsiveness of the frame. It's tight and would be unforgiving if not for the 29er wheels, which give the bike a nice feel especially with the scando/carb back-end. It's quick and light (mine weighs about 22 lbs wheels and all)
Not much yet. I would suggest for any 29er to not skimp on wheels. Get good ones!
I recommend this frame for those wanted to "work up" to a bike. This is a bike that does not hold you back. In fact, I feel that it is my capabilities that limit it. Great bike to grow into. Race it, ride it and enjoy it!
