I bought this bike through Jenson for my G.F as a introductory MTB. This bike has great frame geometry for a H.T and for about 1k the components are solid. Unfortunately however, the dropper post has enough travel that even with the seatpost down all the way the saddle is stil too high for her so when she brings the saddle height back up she has to guess seat height while riding. Very combersome but not a design flaw necessarily. The front fork has decent travel but does not have a lockout or other adjustability. On a positive note she got an upgrade of shimano deore drivetrain and MT-200 brakes which was a suprise! Overall this is a solid bicycle and she's very happy with it.
