Getting a mountain bike, looking at a roscoe 7. Any input on this thing? Looked at specialized, and couple more but seem to favor the trek.

I just picked one up on Monday and took it off road last night. I'm no expert rider (my last mountain bike was from Costco) but for what it's worth, I would recommend it as a good entry level plus size bike. The idea of a 27.5 plus size tire seemed to fit my idea of an all-around bike for trails and off-road touring and I was not disappointed on the 5-mile singletrack test run. The handling was great and I had plenty of confidence with the larger footprint. Roots, rocks and gravel were no problem. Brakes are responsive and shifting under loads did not generate any complaints from the derailleur. I love the 1x drivetrain even if it does sacrifice a bit of top end.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
