I had been for a while thinking of getting a Yeti SB66 to replace my current bike.
However, I have (after reading Doug @ Basque's review) been considering a Meta AM 29 as I do quite fancy a 29er having always had 26ers.
Unfortunately I can't demo one and am concerned about how suitable it would be for all day rides with a fair bit of climbing. Doug says that it climbs well, but does anyone have any further feedback? Its quite a heavy frame, do you notice the weight? I guess on technical climbs the 29 wheels help, but on fireroads?
