I just got my new Trek Wahoo 29er (2012). My first impressions are good, its quite a long bike but the geometry is stable at speed over rough ground, which is one of the 29ers main points. It shifts really well through the 24 gears.

I have heard some comments about the saddle being uncomfortable and I can see where they come from. This is never an issue for me but it is one of the less comfortable saddles I have used.

The suspension is good in compression but if feels like the rebound damping is too soft and not progressive, but I guess it doe a good job of holding the terrain.

The discs brakes also feel fairly weak although they are still bedding in.

I have wanted this bike for some time and prefer the 2012 color scheme to the 2013 version. I would recommend this bike as an entry level 29er having most of the main components that you would want for a pretty good price.
