-Handles very well for a 29er
-Excellent frame geometry (L frame fits 6' rider)
-Low price for the level of performance
Rear wheel clearance doesn't allow for a wider rear tire.
Altogether, this bike is an excellent deal. It competes with bikes at a much higher price point. The frame quality is good, and the component quality is better. The bike smoothly and nimbly traverses singletrack in all kinds of conditions. The shimano XT drivetrain is quick to shift and has perfect gearing for holly riding. If the opportunity comes up to buy one of these, do it!
