    Yeah, I had the opportunity to borrow an RC for a few weeks. Having had and loved three of the 26" models, I was really looking forward to trying the new big wheeled version. I agree 100% with the review. I really wanted to love the bike, but came away disappointed. the traction control mode is almost useless on technical/rocky climbs. it sets the compression damping so high on the fork that anything you hit bounces the front wheel in the air. I ended up buying a Scalpel 29r Carbon 1. the pivot is higher, the fork is stiffer and the shock isn't a DT Swiss.
