Okay, here's where I'm at...and I would LOVE feedback/advice!
I just bought a brand new 2009 EX8 with a few upgrades..it's got XTR shifters and XT cranks. Other than that, stock. I rode one for a demo and loved it, so I bought this one.
But, now I have also seen a very slightly used 2008 EX9 for sale...for about the same price. So I am a bit bummed because as I look at the spec, the 2008 EX9 has more goodies on it. I am debating attempting to sell the 09EX8 for the 08EX9. Good move?
So, I would appreciate ANY and ALL comments. For example, is there something I'm missing between the 08's and 09's that was a big change that might make the 08 EX8 more desirable. Maybe the tapered steertube/headset? What else? Also, how big of a weight difference will these have? Is the EX8 going to be that much heavier? If you were in my shoes, what would you do...keep the 09 EX8 or shoot for the 08 EX9?
