I'm looking at the Response and the Response Sport and was wondering if the component set on the Sport is worth an extra $100? The differences are the Sport has disc brakes, 120mm travel in the front shock compared to 100mm, Shimano Altus front derailleur, and Shimano SL-MC40 shifters. After test riding both bikes, they seemed comparable. No noticeable difference in shifting but the disc brakes were better.
I'm going to be doing some single track on the weekends and some fire road riding during my commute. I'm leaning toward the lower end model without the disc brakes and using the $100 on a helmet and a different derailleur or some pedals.
