    Get a 999 if you mid or pro rider. If you don't have the $$ for a new one the 2012 is the same brilliant unbeatable bike and a very good price - remove the SRAM and throw in the trash can and replace with other.

    Pros
    Lightning fast
    Superb handling
    Best build fame quality
    Nibble and light!!!!!!!

    Cons
    2012 has SRAM brakes - compleat rubbish.
    New 2015 great but not much up on 2012. It is hard to beat.

    Decent race oriented FS bike. Suspension style is still used by different manufacturers and is still viable.

    Was better when I upgrade to full XT and Raceface group.

    Pros
    Light weight full suspension cross country race oriented bike.

    Cons
    Flexy chainstay
    Considerable brake chatter on stutter bumps

    I have rented Elements on a few occasions over the last five years. This is a well-built point-and-shoot bike that will provide a superb ride for long days in the saddle. I've never found another 4-inch bike at any price that I like better.

    Pros
    No suspension bob.
    Good and stiff.
    Great hindling!

    Cons
    I like a little more suspension to ride technical trails.

    Recommended for an intermediate rider looking for a good bike without spending a bundle! I happen to love mine.

    Pros
    A good all around bike for those getting into a full suspension bike and a great bike for the price (around $1,200).

    Cons
    The only thing I wish is that it was a bit lighter.
