Familiarity: I've used it several times

To get the obvious out of the way this bike is big and for how big it is it does climb relatively well. I would not expect this to replace your trail or XC rig if you enjoy PRing climbs and cruising descents. But at 170/160 this bike will climb up most trail rides relatively comfortably and with only a bit more labor.

As for the down this bike rides really well but it takes quite a bit of speed or chunk to really make the bike feel alive. I think if you are riding downhill bike parks or want to smash and grab rooty rocky sections this bike is awesome. But if you are more on the casual end of enduro riding I find this bike to be a bit much. I personally like a bit more poppy and playful feeling when I ride which I would say you don't get as much of out of the megatower. But if you plan on pointing it and rolling through whatever terrain comes by without getting bucked around the Megatower is great.

If you are only a quiver of one rider this may not be the best bike for general purpose riding unless you charge hard and spend a lot of time spinning lifts or riding park. But if you want a fun smash and grab bike to add to the quiver this bike is a riot in that category.

I'm 6'2" 175lbs with a 34" inseam. I have ridden both the L and XL comfortably. Overall though I think I would go L just to be able to move the bike around a bit more easily.

This bike is a blast. While i think the headtube angle could be a touch more slack this thing climbs and descends way better than most XC rigs I have ridden. I had the pleasure of riding this for a weekend down in Fruita on 18mi trails as well as around the Horsetheif area. This bike climbed incredibly well and the grip lockout for the shocks came in handy quite a bit (although most of the time I did just ride it open). While descending this bike was a lot of fund and had plenty of travel to maneuver through the couple rock gardens as well as catch a bit of air without feeling squirrley or completely bottoming out the suspension. While I would not call this a downcountry bike by any means it is a definitely a fun bike that tears up trail on the uphill and descends pretty well for the class of bike it falls into. It is also a really comfortable bike overall that I can definitely imagine hammering out longer arduous rides with.

Knobby Traction
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently put these on my Mojo 3 to try out a different tire than the Maxxis Minions. So far I am really liking them especially in cornering and downhill. I am running the 2.6 tire tough/traction and I feel like I get better grip around corners and better stopping traction on the way down. On the way up they definitely roll pretty well but compared to other tires out there they seem to roll a bit slower. I chalk it up mostly to the over-sized knobs that I really do enjoy. The traction though is really great. I have found myself able hold a tigher line on loose rock and technical features than I may have on another set of tires. Visually the tires seem to be a bit wider than 2.6 but I think the combination of being on 27.5 and running a 2.6 makes them look bigger than they really are. So far they seem pretty durable as well. I spent quite a bit of time popping and landing into rocky chop and roots and now after riding them a few weeks have barely noticed any wear on the tread and have not yet had any punctures. If you are looking to try a new set of tires that will roll well, have great traction and corner well I would give these guys a try.
