I just bought this bike a little over two months ago, and it is right out of the box Awesome to ride. I now have a little over 100 miles on it and the thing is smooth. My first 29r and I'm hooked. I just ordered the Fox. Doss Dropper post to round out the total package. This bike with the components is the best bang for the buck. As competitive cyclist says in their description (Try and find a better deal) FOX CTD suspension and all SRAM X9 this is a solid bike.
