Rated 5 out of 5 by ftdub Nice bang for the buck
So far this bike has been amazing, granted I upgraded from an older model 26er. The gears change super smooth and the fork also seems to be doing a pretty consistent job (especially while running over a bunch of roots). I'm absolutely in love with the 29" rims and the front and rear disc brakes (another upgrade) were very nice to have and came through when they were needed.
The bike itself has a really solid feel to it as well.

I got this bike to hit the trails. I've been a road bike rider for years and I decided I wanted to try something different. Overall it's a good bike for the price. Nice smooth shifting and good breaks. I have only been on beginner and intermediate trails and I'm looking forward to see how a hard tail will perform on the more advanced trails but I am very satisfied with this bike.

Rated 2 out of 5 by big G bad position of rear brake cable
great bike but poor design for rear brake cable , can get caught on clothing , cable is exposed and the mechanism directing it to the rear is in a poor place .

I had a total hip replacement in 2013. I am recovered and needed to get myself moving again. I bought this 29" MTB to cruise around the neighborhood. What a surprise. The bike is fantastic. Well built, good solid equipment. Breaks and derailer are very good and smooth. The shifters work perfectly. The forks have nice suspension or you can lock out the suspension if you like. It is rugged and light. Overall very well worth the $$. I don't ride 40 miles a day and just couldn't see spending $4k on some other brands.
