    It uses "FlexPoint" suspension, which is a single pivot design, AFAIK. So, no Maestro suspension. That doesn't mean it's bad, but it's a different system.

    looks like a fun bike for not a ton of cash...

    however is it just me or does the XL size reach not seem super long at 471mm ??


    in fairness the reach on my XL 27.5 Trance advanced 2 is actually shorter at 468mm..

    Was looking at the 2020 stance 29 1 specs online... seems to be a really good value for a budget fs bike. Decided to go check it out in store at my lbs... they didn't have the 1 build just the lower specd 2. But they did have the new 2020 stumpjumper st 29 which is about $200 more and seems to directly compete. Comes with a dropper just like the stance, same travel, same fork, xfusion shock (not sure how that compares to the rockshox monarch on the stance), same groupset. Only difference is the sj st seems a bit sturdier with the threaded bb and through axles (vs pressed and qr on the stance). Idk both seem like great bikes overall for the price.
