The Pivot Trail 429 is everything you could want in a trail bike. It is nimble and responsive where you need it going uphill and let's loose with great travel on the downhill. The front fork angle hits it just right for tackling big (and small) obstacles, corners extremely well, and the seat angle is perfect for everything on the trail. Although it doesn't quite handle big drops as well as my Evil The Following, the difference is only marginal. The front Fox 34 fork is quite fantastic. I agree with other reviews that the rear suspension feels appropriately sturdy in the locked position, doesn't bottom out in the open position, and has a very comfortable middle option. It is an aggressive bike that feels comfortable with either a casual ride or tackling black trails here in Colorado. It's also designed well to place 1-2 water bottles or other small bags. I haven't used the flip chip yet, so not sure how much that would change the handling. Backcountry did an awesome job with the build and components. Other than the slightly expensive price tag, I really don't have any complaints.
