    Carver 96er / Anyone racing it XC?

    I haven't been on here in a while so I am kind of out of the loop. The Carver 96er looks to be pretty interesting. I ride a 26" Cannondale and my brother rides a 29" GF. I am faster on my bike, but love the stability of his 29er over fast choppy stuff, and the added traction up front in loose corners is incredible, but in the end we are talking about racing. I'm just wondering if the Carver could actually be the best of both worlds? I would like to hear other racers experiences with it before actually buying one. Thanks.

    I will be racing a carver 96er this year. I have ridden/raced a Giant Anthem, Giant NRS c1 and Jamis Dragon. The 96er without a doubt is the best i've ridden. And I cannot wait to compete with it.
