    Would recommend this bike for someone just getting into biking. Could pick up a decent used one cheap.

    Pros
    Rides great
    Easy to control
    Climbs well
    Great entry level bike

    Cons
    Brakes need upgrading
    Tires not all that good
    Clunky shifting.

    Minus those two simple fixes I thoroughly enjoy this bike, I ride 10-15 miles a week and love it.

    Pros
    Great fork
    Great frame
    nice list of components
    Bike amount of bike for the money

    Cons
    Grips always seemed loose, I replaced mine with the Ergon GP-1 grips couldn't be happier.
    Rear derailleur is constantly giving me fits.
    Brakes - from the factory came the hayes dyno comp brakes, the first time I took it out I almost got seriously injured because come to find out 3 of the 4 pistons on the brakes weren't functioning at all. Took it into the local Trek dealer to get it fixed, when I picked it up it had new shimano hydraulic discs on it!! Complements of Trek. Stops on a dime now.

    if you are looking for a solid bike in the 800-1100 range, the Mamba is the bike. Pretty decent fork, brakes are solid, good deal.

    Pros
    Bike has been ridin 280 miles in the first 3-1/2 months. i have not had any unusually problems so far. I have upgraded to a better rear de-railer, but all products are money well spent. i got mine for 930 plus tax.

    Cons
    grips are a little lame, and the tires are not the best, but will obviously be upgraded here soon enough.

    In this price range this is a pretty hard bike to beat. After testing similar bikes in the price range this one simply felt like the right bike for me. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.

    Pros
    Great components for the price
    Excellent feel for a 29er
    Easily serviced by almost any LBS
    Backed by Trek's warranty

    Cons
    Could come with better grips
    Pedals are plastic bricks
