    I had the chance to ride the 429 while I testing bikes. It was great, ride was a little stiff but climbed and handled very well.

    Mach 429 vs. Devinci Atlas

    Anybody have the opportunity to make comparisons between these two bikes? The both look pretty fantastic and I'm having trouble deciding which to buy. Any advice? Has anyone ridden both? Thanks.

    I have a 429, and I too await an in-depth review of the Atlas. The Atlas chainstays are super-short, 15mm shorter than a Tallboy, for example, which leads me to believe it will be a distinct 29'er riding experience.

    Wheel Base on the Atlas is shorter also by 2" along with chain stays being an inch shorter.
    My buddy & I have been deliberating on the Atlas for months.
    My dad'd 429 is awfully fun to ride & it flies on single track.
    Lately I've had an itch for a hard tail & I think I'm going to give the Yelli a go this spring.
    Figure i can always swap parts over to a 429 or perhaps the Atlas.
