After waiting nearly two months for the Santa Cruz Jackal (and SC telling me it would be another month or longer), I finally cancelled the order. Seems this is a common problem with SC bikes.
Instead, I picked up this barely used Yeti DJ. Frame is super stout, yet light. Paint and construction are first rate. Great mix of kit except for the SRAM X7/X9 drivetrain. I really dislike the shifter, specifically the gear increase lever positioning. You have to reach between the grip and the decrease lever to operate. Very inconvenient for 4X/DS/BMX. Shimano clearly has SRAM beat with their dual action trigger.
