Rides great, It is an old bike. been discontinued now. I actually had a wheel issue with my kona last weekend racing so finish the last 30+ k on it. forgot how well it climbs and accelerates compared to the kona. A 26" wheel does not "roll out" of gearing like a 29 does.

It is a different style of riding, you basically let the front end go (the 29" wheel and the suspension fork take all the hits) and just care about your rear wheel line.
