Looking for a steel 29er, prefer thru axle fork - this has it all. Can't find much about this bike, especially the 2011 with that funky/curvy top tube. I'm coming from a light hardtail aluminum 29er, and don't want full sus, just a little relief by steel. I'll be riding pretty aggressive all mountain with the bike. Questions:
1. Has anyone ridden it, and how is it. Somehow that curved top tube looks a bit funky - is it stiff enough? Soft ride. Piece of crap?
2. How does the weight feel? 32.6 lbs sounds pretty heavy, but maybe nice wheelset cures that. Or maybe it hides it well.
3. How does the fork track?
I appreciate feedback. I hunting for a new ride, and this for under $1300 shipped may be the answer.
Thanks in advance!
