Quick handling, 22.5 lb. weight, Avid brakes (although noisy), Maverick fork is a nice ride.
The 26 rear tones down the 29er momentum advantage a bit, but a good trade off for the weight.
This thing is a rocketship. I haven't ridden my geared bike since I bought the Trek earlier this summer. Quick handling, maybe not for the beginner
