Pros: Great do-it-all geometry, Climbs well, descends quickly, confidence inspiring.

Cons: A tad heavy, but the frame is good enough to upgrade to stronger, lighter components.

Recommendation: Thi sis my first full-suspension bike and I'm hooked. Possible one of the greatest trail bikes ever conceived. Plush, responsive, burly enough for some mischief, but won't punish you on the climbs.

Pros: Can do it all! no compromises climbing or descending (fast)

Cons: I could only afford the Dawg, would be nice to have the SUPREME

Recommendation: I went from noob to dropping 4 footers after 40 rides on this baby. 650 miles in and i've only had to replace the chain so far. The walking beam rear suspension makes perfect sense. Get one! or the 2010 Abra Cadabra...

Pros: Plush ride, stable through rocky and washboard terrain.

Cons: Geometry felt compressed front to back for a tall rider (6-foot+). Overall the frame felt a little on the heavy side.

Recommendation: I rode this bike as a "loaner" and it performed well for the task, though I don't know that I'd buy one for myself.

Pros: I have had a few chances to ride this MTB and I loved it.

Cons: NONE yet
