Aspect Trail 29er
rolls over stuff, rides smooth, lighter (mine is 29.7lbs) and has held up well so far.
It's entry level so do not beat it up to bad. seat, petals, grips are entry level as well. You will likely changes these out anyways
Yes I would. If I could have afforded a better component group I would have. In light of that, I love my bike and ride it a lot. The 29er smooths out the trails and rolls fast. Just enough suspension to ease the roots and rocks. The wheels have remain true despite the rider(6'4" & 245#) A little slower in the corners than my Trek 820 with 26 inches wheels, however My laps times are the same on either bike. And you learn the bike soon enough. Shifters have functioned without fail and the brake lock up when I want and modulate well under hard braking.
