    First 29er Santori?

    Hello.
    I am looking to buy my first 29er. Not sure I should, but that's another thread, ha.
    I'm lookin at the Satori. The new one retails at $3400.00. Too much for me, so I've been tryin to find used. Is the 2012 the same geometry as the 2013? For instance, CS length, head angle, etc. I figure to pick one up for the cheaper used price and the upgrade over time.

    Second Q: Are there any other 29er's with very similar specs I could look into?
    I am 5'6" I ride XC mostly in the front range of Colo. with trips to Moab, Fruita, etc. I'm "older". (Don't know if that makes a difference).
    Thanks

    Pretty sure they are identical on all measurements. Also consider the Honzo same geo, steel HT and comes in much cheaper.

    I was close to getting one, but decided that FS was better for my old body (50).

    After test riding many 29ers the Satori was the most fun and agile. Loving this bike, it's going to slay the Whole Enchilada in Moab.
    It wasn't me

    Ya. I'm stickin with FS as well. I'm closin in on 56. Everything I'm hearin about the Santori is not only positive (except weight) but positive in the aspect of "agility/ride-ability. Since this will be my first 29er I'm lookin to make the transition as smooth as possible. If that's possible.
