Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This bike was one of my favorite rides from this past season, and I put my leg over quite a few bikes! A great climber for a longer travel bike that was very comfortable on both the climbs and the descents (I'm 5'11 and rode a Large). Where this bike really shines for me is going down. The Spartan really lets you attack your favorite trails with the confidence and speed of a downhill bike but the nimbleness of a trail bike. The combination of the Split Pivot design paired with the Rockshox suspension and the liberal head tube angle give this bike a truly bottomless feel even on the roughest and rowdiest trails.
While I haven't had a chance to ride the new Spartan 29", I feel right at home on the 27.5" bike and feel like it can handle anything that you throw in its way, regardless of its wheel size. Playful, light and truly just a charger of a bike!
