    Great bike, it's great for a trail bike as long as you don't have huge drops. The XC geometry combined with the 29er tires just works

    Pros
    Light
    Fast
    Fox 32 SC Suspension

    Cons
    None

    This bike with a carbon frame (Anthem X Advanced) is awesome. It is light and agile while having an awesome suspension set up. This is by far the best overall bike I have ever ridden.

    Pros
    Maestro suspension, light, componentry, fast handling, climbs like a hardtail

    Highly recommended for marathon XC. Very fast bike and good all rounder. The 2012 X0 with full XT components and Rockshox suspension is definitely the best value for money FS 29er on the market this year.

    Pros
    Super fast rolling, excellent down hill speed and control, great for log rides and rock gardens.

    Cons
    Hard work in really tight single track and slow steep ascents.

    I actually have the X3 with a full XT upgrade and carbon riser bars. Bike weighs 28lbs 5oz with current setup. Lighter/stiffer wheelset will make a big difference from my readings. Great XC 29 bike for the money.

    Pros
    Fast rolling, good climbing and light for a FS 29er. Geometry works great for me, I'm 5'9" 165Lbs and ride a M frame. Even works good in tight technical trailwork for a 29er.

    Cons
    Wheelset could be better, but I will be upgrading once these wear out.

    I really like this bike. In fact it's probably one of the best major brand FS XC 29ers out there, especially for the price.

    Pros
    Steep headtube makes this bike a good climber. Lightweight and efficient frame design.

    Cons
    Longish chainstays make handling and cornering suffer a bit.

    I'm 6'0, and coming from my Stumpy 26" noticed a much smoother ride...I'm still breaking the bike in, and will review it with more detail at a later date...

    Pros
    Smooth Riding, Flickable(for a 29er), great for long distance trail rides, etc...

    Cons
    So far, nothing comes to mind...but I just got the bike a week ago...
