    I would highly recommend, I cross shopped/tested Santa Cruze, trek bikes in the same category. they were all good, but this one was the bike for me.

    Pros
    Build quality, handling, ride, SWAT, seat. Color.

    Cons
    none.

    My 26 bike is history. Love it out of the box

    Pros
    Handles well in rocky terrain, 2x10 gears with36 big cog in back. Stock set-up perfect, be sure to add a dropper seatpost. I went with KS for more height selection, wheels are great.
    The Revelation at 130 mm travel is all you want, easy to climb w/o raising wheel and plenty of stuff to descend.

    Cons
    Formula brake pads seem to wear quickly and are expensive.

    I researched several bikes prior to deciding to purchase the Stumpjumper FSR Comp Carbon 29. I also looked at the Yeti SB95, Tallboy LT, and Kona Satori. None of those bikes compared to the value of the Stumpjumper. I purchased the carbon Stumpjumper for the price of the others that were in aluminum. I am glad I chose the bike I did because I have been nothing but happy with my purchase. I have owned the bike for going on 2 years and it has held up great. I tend to lean toward the aggressive side of riding and have found that this bike is comfortable on everything from downhill runs to all day XC rides. I live and ride in the southwest (Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah) and this bike has taken everything I have thrown at it form Durango to Sedona.

    I did need to change a few things that weren't quite up to the task. Those were the Avid breaks which I swapped for XT's as well as the wheels. The avids were just too noisy and the wheels needed to be trued every month or so. To the credit of the wheels, I am more of the "grip it and rip it" type than the "pick the clean line type". I am known at my bike shop as someone who is very hard on equipment, so the wheels should be fine for the average rider. I also swapped out the Fox fork to one that has 34mm stanchion and 140mm of travel verses the stock 32mm stanchion and 130mm of travel. I feel like the bike came alive once I did this. The stiffer fork matches better with the frame and the extra from suspension slackens up the head tube angle just enough to give it a good balance between capable trail bike and aggressive all mountain bike. Buy the bike and spend the money you saved compared to a SB95C, or something like that, and upgrade the wheels, breaks, and fork.

    Pros
    Price
    Light
    Good stock tires
    Good component spec for the price
    Geometry

    Cons
    Brakes
    Wheels not as strong as I would like
