I thought that too. I rode one a couple weeks ago, though just near the bike shop, pavement only. Despite weighing more than my 29er, it was easier to pedal than I expected, and soaked up the bumps and imperfections in the road. I want one.

But this has my curiosity up. My fork on my 29er can accommodate wider than the 2.25 and 2.35 rubber I use. The rear might get a 2.5 in there. Just curious how the 29er would fare with wider rubber. Bike is a 2010 or so Performance Access XCL 9r.
