    2014 Covert 29 questions and geo

    I looking to potentially move my build over from a Bandit 29 to a 2014 Covert 29 as I'm thinking to Covert would do somewhat better on the downs and for bigger hits.

    I see the on the TBC website it lists the pivot placement as begin different now to improve climbing.

    How does the new covert 29 climb compared to the Bandit 29?

    Would the geometry difference be that noticeable between the Bandit 29 and Covert 29?

    For reference I ride an XL Bandit 29 now running a 50 mm stem.

    This is my professional opinion based on what our customers have purchased and where and how they ride. Bandit is more Trail oriented and a better climber, bit lighter and tighter geo. Covert 29 is a better decender, more aggresive rider oriented, slacker Geo, more travel. Based on how/where you ride there is something to consider...good luck!
