    Build Kit?

    Thinkin about getting a Transition Preston and a build kit to go with it.
    Money is a little tight so I found these 2 kits but I'm a noob and not sure which one is all around better. I don't plan on doing any real big drops or jumps, mainly climb to the top and bombing down and probably some XC.

    or

    any other suggestions in around these price ranges are appreciated.

    In my opinion I would get the wheel world build kit. It has a better fork and wheels but you have to have shimano shifting. I like SRAM better but take your pick. I'm sure there are others on here that disagree with that statement.

    personally, I dont think I'll ever buy a complete build kit. It just seems like you end up wasting money on parts you don't really want.

    If I were you, I would start going through the classifieds here and other places and build up the bike from the parts you want rather than restricting it to a completel build kit.

    Thanks guys, that's what I was thinking too plus it sounds like a 6" shock works better with the Preston.
    I guess if anything it gets me pedaling for a good price and I can always upgrade the fork in a couple years.
