I would jump on the BH Rebel Lynx if they offered you the last one... they are bulletproof and many dealers support the Yamaha PW-X.My guess is jealousy, so he resorts to personal attacks. Oh well. Why god gave us the ignore option. Some folks are just small-minded. He just does not want to hear thought processes and experiences and how we got here. Some are just inherently unhappy. I'm not evil, and I'm not stupid, thank you very much.
I'm trying to determine proper sizing on these bikes - Lenny's only has one Rebel lynx left and it's a medium. They got 80 of the various models and are nearly sold out.
I thought I wanted a large. I've PM'd a couple of guys here that I think got them to find out what they got and how they fit. Seems I'm always right on the cusp of both sizes - M and L.
I'm scheduled to demo the YT Decoy 29 Pro in large tomorrow - will get a pic or two and report. They are a LOT more $$ than these, but pretty much on par with Giant and Specialized around here. You do get a little more bike, better components, and that carbon fiber frame. The 'Base 29' is a step down componenet-wise, but still seem solid. $4499 list. They ARE 'twenty-niners'.
I saw on another review on the Rebel that 29" wheels would fit if one wanted to convert it. May actually be worth looking at.
It does appear that BH may not be continuing here in the US, but Lenny's mentioned that they are working with them on it. They did say getting parts was 100% and into the future. I don't worry so much with the Yamaha drive, and they mentioned that as well. They are really solid, very very few claims. I'm more than handy so not worried about it. For the other drives I think I would pass - I would want local support so if it blew up I could drop it back for warranty work. We have good dealers that support the yamaha drives here, and Yamaha is just up the road a bit locally.
