- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

About to pull the trigger on my first real MTB. I really want something carbon and racey but not sure how much I need it.

The Evo 29er looks pretty nice for the money (1x10 and fox fork), my LBS has a couple 2012's marked down and weight seems reasonable as well for an aluminum frame. Frame looks racey enough if I decide to do a couple short XC races. I can probably get the 2012 for $1850 or $1900.

Liking the XTC 29er Composite 1 but not sure how much lighter it would be and curious if it would be worth the extra $$. Plus the frame looks almost too stiff.

I ride one, I like it a lot.
I've changed out a lot of parts on it, if you can get a deal, then it's a good purchase.
The stock wheelset is crappy, I didn't have much luck with the Avids and swapped them after the rear brake died on me in a race.
The crankset is a pig too, as well as the saddle and seapost.
1x10 is nice, but I might swap mine to 2x10 soon...
