Hey I just brought one, the EI model.

Its only one ride old but so far its a great fast bike.

It replaces my Intense Tracer VP and is my first 29er full suspension.

I swapped the handle bars to something wider and put a shorter stem on it.

The EI stuff seems pretty helpful and reviews on the net are good.

They are pretty playful for a 29er XC bike. Do good wheelies.





Interestingly, EI ones have been selling better for us than non-EI ones. Complete opposite of the Zesty EI's...

Unfortunately the e:i XR is not affordable for my friend.
I had read a nice review suggesting excellent handling that was more like a 26er and generally thumbs up. But i am a little wary of 8/10 syndrome when it comes to reviews . . . .
