    Ok bike for the money but there's better out there

    Pros
    Lightweight, climbs well

    Cons
    Very slow to turn in tight corners compared to other 29 I have ridden. Bontrager everything is not a plus.

    Would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a great mid level HT mountain bike

    Pros
    Compared to a 2012 trek cobia it's much lighter. Less weight equals better climbing and over all better performance. Comes well equipped. From the factory with XT components.

    Cons
    Stock tires not the greatest for my desert riding.

    I have been riding this bike for little over a year now and i really like it. It has a little over 2200 miles on it and it still works perfectly fine. Stock, pretty much everything is good except for the handlebars and the wheels. Even though the frame is aluminum, it is still really nice with only a few chips in it. The bike is around 25 pounds stock.

    Pros
    Light weight
    strong
    good looking
    good components
    reasonable price

    Cons
    heavy wheels
    bottom of the line handlebar and seatpost

    Excellent bike. Hands down best 20" bike I put my hands on. Would recommend to anyone trying to encourage a young rider to like mountain biking.

    Pros
    Lightest 20" bike I could find. Even lighter than most smaller kids bikes. Weighs in at ~ 19#'s.

    Cons
    Grip shift. End of grip with shifter wants to keep sliding out. I have to push it back in several times per ride. My five year old just started riding this as a sibling hand me down and is having a hard time with grip strength to shift.

    Set this frame up with some good components and build a killer XC Race Bike.... I have this frame in both geared and singlespeed.... No complaints.. Great Frame Warranty as well.....

    Pros
    Light, stiff, G2 Geometry...

    Cons
    minimum frame protection.

    After years of riding cheaper hardtail 26ers, I finally made the jump to the 29er. I love this bike! I was worried that that the bike would feel big and cumbersome, but it has been the exact opposite. I carry so much more speed on the trail, and more importantly the ride is so smooth and much more fun. I also have a much easier time climbing hills. The Trek geometry makes the bike so easy to steer and flick around on the trail. This is an awesome bike for people like me who have been riding cheaper 26ers that want to step up to a quality 29er without spending thousands of dollars.

    Pros
    Very lightweight, handles great

    Cons
    none for me

    For what you get for the money, this bike is 'decent' at best. It could have been built with better components for the same price. It's an admirable hard tail, even with g2 geometry. I still ended up changing out several components to match my needs, which i didn't expect to do on a bike of this price. It served me well for one season, but after this bike i vowed never to buy a complete bike again unless it has exactly everything i want for the price. I'd recommend this bike for a seasoned rider that isn't ready to pony up the funds for carbon.

    Pros
    Not too heavy. Fox fork. Tubeless ready wheels.

    Cons
    Price, for what you get.
