Model/Year: Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Exper EVO Carbon

Pros: Bought as a frameset and built with Rockshock Pike XX1 1x11 drive train Roam 60 wheeler and SRAM Guide brakes... This bike is point and shoot like riding on a rail even in Sandy conditions. Very impressed

Cons: After riding a 29re for so long you get used to the roll over of the bike wheel .... But it was Well work the change

Recommendation: If you are tall get to a shop and Ride one before you drop to a 650b

Model/Year: 2010 Comp

Pros: Affordable, good value, durable, xc geometry

Cons: Entry level, heavy

Recommendation: This was a great entry level bike for the XC minded rider. It is capable of light to medium trail and getting the wheels of the ground, if one is reasonable about it. For an XC bike, it is a touch heavy. Mine weighs in at about 28.5 lbs with only change from stock being tubeless tires w/Stan's sealant. All in all, a great starter/training bike.

Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Plush ride. The suspension and oversize tires really smooth out the trail. And the traction ... unbelievable. I read somewhere online that this forgiving bike increases your confidence, and they were right!

Cons: Stock stem is far too short. I suppose it would be fine if you were doing a lot of downhill, for XC riding I had to swap it out for a 110.

Recommendation: Highly recommend you go for a test ride.

Update to my review: Took it out this last weekend on rocky/rooted/hilly terrain with a buddy riding his front suspension/hardtail 29er. It was a good move to go with a longer stem. The 6Fattie performed FAR beyond expectations, and I believe MUCH better than my friends 29. In trying to find ways to describe the ride, I settled on two:
1) The FSR 6Fattie lets you do things confidently and safely that you otherwise shouldn't be able to do. You nearly instantly forget that you're on oversize tires, and at the same time, those oversize tires are giving you traction that cannot be overstated. I have no words to describe the ride!!
2) There are no other ways to say it, ... The 6Fattie makes you a Mt Biking Superhero.

On another note, I've mine set up for tubeless, and I highly recommend it.
