Had a chance to test one of our (thespokeshop) 2012 SJ Comp 29er on the usual trails I ride with my Specialized Enduro for a couple of days. The 29er carries momentum really well through choppy rolling terrain and climbs VERY well as far as traction goes and being able to keep the front end down takes no effort. However when it does get steeper you can feel the 29ers wheel weight along with the slower response to quick bursts of acceleration. My Enduro is 3 pounds heavier and is more responsive (due to wheel weight and diameter). Specialized hit the nail on the head with the auto sag feature and has so far worked great with a number of different rider/styles. The bike is more than willing to eat up anything in the trail along with "drops" that you would come across in most areas. The bike is really fun to ride and is stellar performer on the trails we have around our area. It will have you grinning as you tackle some sections you may not have in the past...this bike can do it all. In a nut shell.....It would be hard to be disappointed in this bike it will make most riders better and more confident. My Enduro is still the bike for me however. Its more play full and handles the really rough and bigger drops better (it should because its made for that). Thanks and here is a link to a fun Snow ride video I did this winter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Dckc...
