Ok in a couple of weeks I'm going to buy one of these bikes. I was just wondering why you're guys thoughts were on these bikes for my riding style and you're experiences? I am about 160 with gear on and ride mostly trail with a little bit of track now and then. I've always owned race bikes because I've always liked the feel of them but I think it's time to get more of a trail bike with electric start ha. The xc appeals to me because it has a gearing that I'm a little mor accustomed to. But are the aer 48 air forks better for me with my wheight or would the xplor forks be better. I picked these bikes because of the linkage and that's what I'd like to stay with . Hope to hear all you have to say.
