Bought the Cannondale SL 2 this winter and really only got to put it through the paces one time, but it performed better than I had hoped. It is my first 29er and I took some convincing to make the jump from a full suspension 26 (Santa Cruz Heckler). I loved how the Cannondale rolled over minor roots, rocks and general trail debris. Sections that tended to bog my speed down in the past on my 26er I was able to blast through on the SL 2. The rear triangle also gives about 5mm because of the unique alloy tube design.

The SL 2 also performed very well on some downhill / freeride type trails at 7Springs Ski Resort in PA.
