    I've ridden one. Not a huge fan. The TT is really short, and the HT angle feels too steep. Lots of forward weight bias. Really narrow bars. Turns pretty good though, and has a solid parts spec. I really like the tires, FWIW.

    I've been cross shopping with the 08 paragon, and I'm thinking thats what I'm gonna get over the specialized if I can ever sell my damn time trial bike...

    I've been riding a Rockhopper Comp 29er for a few weeks now...I love the geometry. TT length feels great. (I have a 21" frame and I'm 6'5"). Guess you just have to test them yourself. I couldn't be happier with the bike.

    I rode a 19" SJ 29'er. Geometry felt pretty good. The flat bar is too narrow and bar angle is too shallow. Put a Specialized riser bar on and it feels great. Would like a little larger volume tire though.
