Hey folks, I posted this in the Rocky Mountain Forum already but I think it belongs here. On top of that I hope for more different opinions on that plus maybe different similar bikes that would fit my needs of an all mountaim/trail bike with enough travel and good uphill ability. @mods: If this kinda repost should be a problem just delete the thread, thanks.
I'm a German being in El Paso, Texas for a year and since the mountains here a great for mtb riding I decided to get one. Was originally looking on the KHS 5500 2014 (local dealer made a nice offer) but it will come out spring next year and I don't want to wait that long.
So I started a long research and decided that the Rocky Mountain would be a nice option for me.
Sadly there is no local Rocky Mountain Dealer, so I have to order it online. Since I'm 6'3" with long legs and arms I would need a xl frame (or L if you tell me they come out bigger than usual and would fit me).
JensonUSA.com currently has 2 nice offers for the 750msl and the 730. I need your help to decide! Please tell me about your experiences with these bikes! I really like the fox suspension and the vario seat post in the 750msl. Carbon is really cool too but I heard that the weight difference is not too big and I wouldn't care about a few grams more it's not too much of a big deal. Is the roxshox suspension worse than the fox suspension (would you feel the difference). I always wanted to get fox suspension lol
Is the carbon 750 worth the extra $ in comparison to the 730?
Other important question : do you now better online stores to afford these bikes or a 750 aluminium my size (I think that's my favorite).
Thanks for your help folks,
