Congrats on your first mtb, No brainer!! Hope you love it as much as I love my hardtail.

BTW, how tall are you to have a 29er?

6'1". I love the look of this bike. It looks massive and angry with the dark gray paint. I parked it at a bike rack on campus yesterday and turned around to look at it and just laughed. It looked like it was going to eat all the other bikes.

It handles great. I thought it might be kinda sluggish since the wheelbase is so freaking long, but the only time I notice it is when I'm trying to do a super slow, tight U-turn.

I went out yesterday and rode trails all day. It's an absolute blast. Mountain biking is awesome.
