I have seen more than one reference in the 29er forum to the Karate Monkey being a "harsh" riding frame. Fact or fiction. Having never ridden any 29er I have no point if reference, but maybe some of the older riders can compare to a rigid MB1 , rigid steel stumpy, rigid Wicked FC as IMO are all good compliant frames. I realize perception is everything as the bikes I listed ridden rigid would be harsh to lots of riders.
