    2008 Giant XTC 1 vs 2009 Giant XTC 1

    Started a new thread so you know there's new information, and possibly some new views...
    Rode the Mongoose Super Amasa last night and didn't really care for it. Quite heavy as well.

    We are going to look at the 2008 and 2009 Giant XTC 1, 2008 is $850, 2009 is $950.

    They have different brakes, different fork, etc. I'm more familiar with the parts on the '08 (rockshox, avid juicy), but don't know anything about the parts on the '09. Any input on the components?

    Get the 08. Many 09 bikes are coming out more poorly equipped than the 08s, for a higher MSRP. Plus, you may be able to find the 08 on clearance for an even better deal.
