    You don't mention what kind of riding your doing. The Edge is a very solid AM bike capable of some pretty rough trails. The Jekyll is more of an XC or Trail bike...lighter frame with a lighter wheelset.

    I'd get the Jekyll, it newer year and has the adjustable geometry, without changing travel. solid single pivot design. I had one love it.
