Recent SS convert
just got mine (size L, burner orange) last week - love it. geometry is pretty upright. components are all very solid with exception of grips which are total junk. Put Crank Bros. Candy 2 on it, so is an orange explosion. If thinking about SS 29er, get this bike (plus is on sale, free shipping).
--update: I've seen others on various reviews talk about loosening of the rear dropouts due to the paint on the frame chipping off. This is very true. On your first 1-2 rides, take a 6 mm hex with you so you can tighten the heck out of those bolts because it will get rattly
