Over all good bike. Took to elm creek today for its first ride on a trail and it held up quit well and road fast the only down side was that the shifter was supperrr stickey and would drop really hard once it did shift it also was sorta hard to get comfortable on but other than that it worked really well

    Needed an upgrade, bought this at the Ellicott City store. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and answered all my questions. I tested this and a comparable Scott. Both were nice. This frame just fit me better. I did change the grips and added some toe clip pedals. Other than that, it was great through the trails. Loved the larger 29" wheels which does make it easier to roll over rocks/sticks/logs especially on the uphill portions. The front shock has a lot of travel. The bike is light. I am not a fan of the seat. Then again, I don't think I like any of them that come stock. I changed out the one on my old bike as well, and I'll be changing this one too. However, I haven't been riding much, so it may be something I could get used to. Other than that, I can say that 24 gears is an overkill. I was able to get there on the road, but honestly didn't need it, and can't imagine when I would use it unless you're going downhill as it's so high, you would need some strong legs to get to it on the flats, and I can't imagine it would be possible on any trail.

    This is a great bike. I bought one for myself. I've rode it 65 miles in a week so far and plan to ride many more. I also bought my wife the 17.5 " Marlin 6 I put a gel seat on it for her and she loves it.

    First time I've ever owned a quality bike. This bike flys through the trail up or down. Extremely light, smooth feeling when riding. Only thing I was told is the single wall wheels but for a fun/mild rider, this bike is amazing! For the price this is the one to buy, hydraulic discs are worth it.
