I managed to find one of the last 2021 Devinci Kobain 12s SLX builds. From what I could figure, a FS with equivalent spec would set me back an additional ~1k to 1.5k and I couldn't bring myself to drop that type of coin.  I had been curious about hardtails so thought I'd give it a go. So far no regrets. There are a few small things I might consider upgrading but overall it's a very rideable package out of the box. Currently mulling over some brake upgrades but the stock stoppers haven't been quite as bad as I thought they might be. Trying to be economical about it and use everything up before seeking replacements. Edit: I'll also add that the geo isn't necessarily groundbreaking stuff but IMO is just right. It feels totally natural to ride. Stable, yet easy to maneuver, planted, yet playful? All I know is that I finish my rides with a big smile on my face. Mission accomplished.
