Hey all,

Is anyone running this bike? If so, what are your thoughts?

I ride a Release 29 2. One step down from the 3 in terms of components but otherwise the same bike. I like it. It’s my first 29er and my first entry into the sport in over a decade. It’s heavy (but so am I). Everything works and it’s a solid value. Biggest weakness component wise is the stock rims. They’re generally fine and come tubeless ready, but I’ve been getting loose spokes after almost every ride, and even lost a nipple in the rim during a ride. I just keep an eye on it. Also the pivots were not fully torqued down from the factory so just check that. Otherwise I’m riding the heck out of it in the PNW until I can upgrade to a Transition next year. Hope that helps.
Cheers
F
