    I bought a used 2010 model from a guy that raced it and really put it through the paces. It is structurally sound and the components he put on it are top notch. It has a Fox F29 fork on it, which is super plush. I highly recommend this bike.

    Pros
    smooth
    great geometry

    This is a great bike! I have 2 other high end bikes and I love riding this one because I can climb better on this one than any of the others. It is a great bike for the money. It climbs like a goat and really goes fast over obstacles, too. I recommend it for anyone who rides XC type trails (not sure I would race it though)

    Pros
    Has a great balance once you get used to the size. Light for it's size.

    Cons
    I think there are better tires out there to be had, but nothing a quick upgrade won't fix.

    Buy it. Its indeed "the monster truck of mountain bikes" as stated by Kuala_tahan. Love the white frame with black letters. Dont need full suspension with a 29er.

    Pros
    Smoothness, Speed, gets over everything, Genesis 2.0 geometry increases handling even for my 21in frame. Love that shock.

    Cons
    Even though the geometry helps the handling, mine is still a 21in frame so I do sacrifice a bit of handling while going fast in the trees/switchbacks... but I make up for it in the climbs/descents/straights and sand.

    I have been away from mountain biking for a while and wanted to get serious about it i was looking for a something that was a great all around bike for trail and commute, reviews led me to a 29r i am stoked about my decision

    Pros
    Rolls over rocks and roots like a dream, has tons of pedal clearence so you can torque over stuff you would have to bomb over on a 26.The big wheels seem to compensate for it being a hardtail. And the baby blue and white is classy as hell.

    Cons
    so far nothing

    Highly recommended - every time I ride it I fall in love with it even more. Just started riding again after about a 6 year hiatus, and the 29" are much more fun than 26". Like the Monster Truck of bikes, you can crush the little 26ers. Fun as hell to ride on

    Pros
    Rolls over everything, higher pedal clearance over ground than 26", looks like a beast, can get absolutely bombing on it, light(er)

    Cons
    Sacrifice a little control with the 29" wheels, brakes loosened up a little on me
