    Airborne Goblin or 2012 Trek X-Caliber

    I can purchase a 2012 X-Caliber on closeout for the same price as the Airborne Goblin. I should mention that the LBS isn't well reviewed as far as their service goes, so I am not leaning towards the shop for service with either choice. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    X-Cal has a dual air Reba while the Goblin now has a solo. The geo on the X-cal is good with a slack ht angle and shorter chainstays.

    Spec on these is comparable. Since price is equal, X Cal. More bling, G2 geometry, plus some level of LBS support.

    2013 X Cal has the solo air Reba, BTW.
