    Good bike, love the components on the Comp I have two friends that also bought Overdrives collectively we have the expert, sport, and mine the comp and there is a big difference from the expert, and a noticeable difference from the sport, I am happy with the bike

    Pros
    sturdy, shocks, components

    Cons
    little heavy, pedals, and saddle

    I am 6' 5" tall and 280lbs, I have been riding a 29'er for about 5 years now. Mostly XC with some technical mountain stuff thrown in. I was looking to upgrade my 4 year old Marin, but could not afford to go full XC Race (wanted to stay around 1000.00). This bike does fit the bill. The drivetrain components are great, and I took several upgrades from the Marin (stuff purchased over the last 4 years) and put them on the DB. The first was the Handlebars (raceFace atlas riser) then the pedals (saints) the only upgrade I purchased was a set of avid BB7's.

    The geometry of this bike was "different" then my old bike. Felt more like I was "IN" the bike instead of "ON" the bike. A great experience actually. Most of the trails I seem to pick have some decent climbs and it is a great platform for that (as any hardtail with a front lockout is) but what is a real improvement to me is the downhill and straights and curves, being IN the bike, helps with the handling.

    Pros
    Sram x5 components,Tapered Rock Shox fork, 6061 aluminum frame, price.

    Cons
    Avid Elixir 1 brakes, very narrow handlebar.

    Great bike to really start getting into the 29r XC scene locally. This bike should be able to handle most XC trail terrain.

    Pros
    really nice spec sheet. Light, yet strong bike. great "sitting 'in' the bike" feel due to the 29" wheels. Good cranks.
