I ride this bike 5 to 6 time a week. There has never been an issue with it. I just can't tell you what a bike this is untill you ride one. I know they don't demo these kind of bike but if you pull the trigger and buy one you won't be sorry. Also I ride with a group of friends that all have 26". Now that I'm the only 29" (atleast for now) they have a hard time trying to keep up. The bike really made a big difference on my speed.
This bike is the fastest cross country bike i've ever ridden. I was skeptical at first about the 29 inch wheels, coming from 26 inch, but Specialized have done an amazing job. The angles of the bike are great and it's so responsive. On tight, steep single track the bike handled better than my hardtail 26er. The XTR shifts like a dream and I love it. I ride with the brain full on so I can ride fast and when I get into the rough stuff, I forget I have a brain. This bike is a winner and will have you on the podium!
