New 29er Airborne vs Sette Razzo X7 vs TREK Mamba vs Kona Taro
Ok so I am retiring my old beat giant rincon that has been to mordor and back. Looking to get a nice 29er after riding several and absolutely falling for them. Been doing TONS of research the past few weeks to narrow down the right one for me.
Airborne Goblin $1200
-Idealy my first choice but a bit pricey for my budget. Has the perfect shock and gearing combination 2-9
Airborne Gaurdian $600
-Excellent bike but will need to upgrade the front shock eventually. Also hear lots of issues with front derailer (would rather have the 2x or single anyways) also there's some possible clearance issue with the rear tire and that derailer
Sette Razzo x7 $700
-Haven't heard as much about this bike but all seem positive. Great front shock
Kona Taro $1200
-New bike this year and only a 1x9 gearing so undecided if I should go this route. I Stay on the middle cog 99% of the time so I imagine I would be fine though.
I tend to like a bike with a lower standover, have more control over the bike. I also might get a small even though I should probably get a medium because I am 5'9" at 160lbs. I seem to ALWAYS ride the bikes with the seat post all the way down, most comfort for me
