No, my budget didn't quite stretch to the 2011 model, I've bought a barely used version of this:

First ride last night and pleasantly surprised at the ride without suspension, but will put it (& me) through more of a test this weekend.

LBS gave me a bit more info with bike fit yesterday

As mentioned above, I put a carbon fork on it (under $350 landed). Also I upgraded the brakes to some BB7s I had lying around, and now some Juicy 5s. Much better than the BB5 pieces of crap that are on there, which really stuggle with the big wheels, and the fact that they are crap. The tyres also weigh a ton, but I got great traction out of them... Have fun :)

I narrowley avoided divorce when wife was introduced to the new member of the family yesterday - upgrades on hold for a while!
Thanks for the advice on the forks - they look to be the business.
For my virgin ride on a 29er & single speed offroad, I was very happy with my choice (but that may have just been adrenaline)
