    That's a beautiful frame and looks great with your 9.7 components.

    THEY ARE! My 9.9 came with the Team Issue XR4s 2.35 and they are as big a Maxxis 2.5. I tried them, but the side wall balloons out and I could feel the rear fold over on higher speed corners and off camber switches. I ran them at about 27-28 psi tubless, but they feel fine with tubes at higher PSI. I will say though, the side walls had plenty of scars from the rocky terrain I ride, but never gave out or tore.

    Got to add picks of my steed Put a new seat and shorter stem on.

    They are not a bad tire. In fact, I think they work well on loose over hard and even more sandy conditions. I have no idea about mud or wet conditions. I weigh about 200 with all my gear and normally run about 30 psi in rear and 27 in front. Like I said earlier, I could feel the tire fold a little on the rear during higher speeds in corners. A lighter rider may not experience this. They never came unbeaded and the tire held up fine. I run one on the front of my Kona bass for pump track and jumping and it works great to keep me from washing out in the front.

    The wheels are Crankbrothers Iodine 3s. Yeah, the seat was on clearance. I don't think they sold many of these cause of the orange color, but it works great on my bike. Feels GOOD and has a bigger nose for my ass on the climbs!

    picking my 11" Marlin SS up today, I'vebeen waiting for it for about a week. It was between a Spec HRD 29er, or the Trek.I've never owned a Trek but I wanted to try SS and didn't really want another Specialized. Pics after I ride it into the ground tomorrow

    So they thought the order for my bike was for this coming Monday instead of being placed this Monday :/ They have awesome CS so I wasn't upset, I just pulled the trigger on a 12' Marlin geared. I'll switch to SS sometime in the future, plus I got a few hookups for getting my stuff messed up. I only rode around the streets of Dallas and on some paved trails, all our trails are in recovery due to the weather. All in all I love it, glad I chose this over the HRD29.

    I had them change out my pedals to TSC platforms, and I'll be grabbing some BB7's and saving for a tubeless set up in the near future. First Trek/GF and I'm a big fan. I didn't notice any "quick" response when turning as mentioned about the G2 forks. But I came from a 26 so I might not be able to tell at this moment, maybe when our trails clear up.

    Here's a picture of my fish.

    Putnam: I think you would have to ride other 29ers to notice a real difference with the G2 front end of the GF. The point of G2 was to try to speed up response to try to be more like 26ers, so I doubt you will relly see a difference unless you ride some other similar 29ers from other brands.

    And yes, the weather has been pretty crappy around here (Dallas) but I can't argue with some relief from the drought over the last week. Noble sacrifice of riding to get some water on the ground around here.
    Fat guys need bikes too.

    My "08" 6000. Only upgrades so far are tires and grips. The saddle is next and then what ever wears out or breaks first.

    since its a ridged frame theres no super heavy susp. fork so the steering is nice and nimble.
    also it has a G2 design so i sit low in the cockpit instead of floating on top.
    and its a full chromo frame so it takes most of the light bumps with ease
