Familiarity: I've used it several times

I feel as though if you are looking at this bike, you have already heard the hype. I must say I was pretty skeptical of all the raving reviews chalking it up to a hype train.

Now after getting a few rides on one I have become a believer.

I am coming from a Bronson 2.0 which I LOVE. It has been very hard for me to part with it but I am really beginning to love the 29ers. They really do pick up speed like crazy and roll over just about anything. I was worried about struggling with them in tighter corners but haven't noticed any loss in nimbleness.
I did notice on the up when going slower through technical sections the front can get away from me but I think the more I ride the bike and get used to it that will get better.

I was also worried about the 135mm rear travel after coming from the Bronson's 150mm but I haven't noticed too much of a difference yet. I would say for 99.9% of people 99.9% of the time 135 is more than enough. Not to mention it rides like way more. I also built mine up with the 29 inch wheels but with a 150 fork. I LOVE IT!

I only have a few days on the bike so far but am looking forward to putting in more miles and really finding out what this thing can do.

All droppers have their issues. The reverb has had its fair share but the new B1 version seems to have them ironed out. The 1x lever is GREAT! I really didn't love the old plunger/button style lever they had. This is much more comfortable and natural to use.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really like these. I have bigger hands so the bigger diameter of these feels great to me. Also awesome if you ever ride without gloves. The only downsides to these are if you crash they get shredded, when they get wet they get quite slippery, and they are a struggle to get on. Still awesome and would recommend!
