Does anyone have experience with this bike or brand?

I've never had a 29er, but I'm set on giving a hardtail big wheeler a go.

I'm buying in Germany, so the options are a little different here, but the bike that has caught my eye is the Grand Canyon AL 7.9. http://www.canyon.com/_en/mountainbikes/bike.html?b=3013

Notice any reasons to avoid it? It's mail order only which sucks, but for the price (1300 Euros), I haven't been able to find another bike with parts as decent as this one, and I especially like the tapered head tube, 15mm fox fork, x12 rear axle, and 440mm chain stays for a 29er.

No real commentary, but I like the short chainstays! My scott scale was one of my favorite handling bikes, 440mm stays (17.3) and 69.5* HA. Yours is pretty similar...

Don't know much about their mountain bikes but their road bikes are up there with the big brands, having said that, that bike looks sweet!!!
