    *****

    After riding the Switchblade and the 429 Trail, I'd go with the Switchblade. It's an even more confident descender than the Trail and gives up little on the climbs.

    Pros
    - Climbs like a shorter travel bike
    - Descends like a longer travel bike
    - Stiff frame
    - 29 or plus compatible
    - Room for H2O bottle inside front triangle
    - Quiet internal cable routing

    Cons
    - Heavy for a carbon bike
    - 12x157 rear axle spacing can limit wheel choices

    If you get the 29" option, leave the lower big headset bearing cup.

    Pros
    Agile, fast, responsive, stiff, versatile.

    Cons
    Can't win a XC race.
