The 29er se version has all shamano xt fox forks the normal 29er version has rock shox avid and sram x9 which would you choose and why?
Are these the best race bikes for the money?

Se for me, like xt better, plus it's not grip shift,

I prefer the equipment on the SE but the forks on the non-SE would sway it for me. I think the current generation of Fox forks are not up to the job.

Did anyone purchase one of these bikes?

I am interested in them myself. Is the advertised weight true?
