 I have ridden many many full suspension 29ers, including Pivot, Specialized, Santa Cruz and Trek.

This is by far the fastest of all of those bikes. The pedaling platform is years above Specialized. By that I mean it is not necessary to have a shock that locks out. The FSR needs to have a shock that locks out.

This bike can descend much faster than most bikes I have ridden as well.

Using my Strava and riding trails that I have ridden hundreds of times, I set new personal records on my first ride on this bike.

 Great bike. I used to ride high travel free ride bikes and i don't miss it at all. You can rocket up hills then turn around and fly down them this it a great bike. Really stiff yet lightweight (mine weighed in at 27 pounds when i got it ) great bike for almost anything you want to throw at it. this bike is like none other when you are going down a hill skipping over rocks then you start to go uphill it fells like you didn't loose any speed its great. Only downside it the rims are a little prone to knocking out of true but this is the case with any 29er really.
