So I made a bit of a left turn and ended up getting the Santa Cruz Superlight 29 R XC. My brother-in-law has one and I took it for a spin on his street and fell in love immediately. I love the low stand over position, the elevated chain stays, and it looks darn cool. Found a great deal on it so I didn't go too far over budget.
I have been looking at this brand. Nice selection of bikes. Does anyone have any feedback for this bike??

bikenerds has some sick closeouts too. Big fan of the closeout stuff!
