I have recently purchased a Giant 29er XTC and is a great bike. I have been riding a full suspension and a I have a new found respect for hardtail riders. Descending at high speeds is quite different as it bounces around and I need to get used to it. I am impressed at how pro racers descend the trails they do at the speed they do! I like the XTC and currently do not own a fully anymore. I hope riding a hardtail makes me a better rider. As for the XTC, it is by far the best climbing bike I have ever ridden. And compared to the 26er hardtail it does float over roots and rocks.
