Ha, the Enduro 29 thing was probably mine. I wanted to try one out of intrigue more than anything, one of my riding mates works for the big S, and has been injured for a while so I've been using his.
I almost wish I hadn't now. It's a bit of an odd one to explain for me, as before I rode it, I never had any 29er experience, so had no basis for comparison.
The wheels look big, but kinda in proportion, with me being quite tall on a big bike. Once I started riding it though, on trails I know, I was pretty surprised. It felt like a really fast monster truck. It's really odd at first, because it's fast, like really fast! Yet it doesn't do all of the bad things people talk about 29ers for.
The only way I can describe how it eats things up, is it feels a little like a crazy light DH bike, yet one that pedals like a trail bike.
I've been amazed by it to be fair. I'm fairly constant with what I like about a bike, so this has been a bit of a departure from the normal for me. Maybe because of my preconceptions of 29" bikes, it's the first bike i've ever ridden & thought wow, this is really, really good.
I kinda want to keep it...
