 I have a heavily upgraded LT 3.0 and I love it so much! It still weighs around the same-ish but pedals up hill pretty well despite a lack of lock-out suspension. The front wheel doesn't ever get sketchy/squirrelly going up hill, and grips lick a lizard going downhill (might be my tire choice but still...). My only complaint is the lack of propedal options, but the suspension (both front and rear) in general because they seem to have a lot of negative reviews around the net and leak alot. mine seem to be doing quite well though and I hope it continues like that for a long time. But it is something I would like to upgrade in the future. Also, the 27.2mm seat tube diameter makes it hard to find decent dropper posts.

Overall, freaking awesome but should have come stock with better suspension.

 I love my Fluid LT 3!

It feels great while pedaling up the mountain but really shines when you head back down.

I have had no problems with it and only thing I really felt I had to change was the stem and handlebars. A shorter stem and low handlebars give a better feel if you want to spend more time with the bike pointed downhill.

Overall I'm really happy with it and I think it is a very capable bike that fits the All Mountain category perfectly.
