    Need opinions: N9 or Yelli?

    Bike would be used for tight and twisty single track, smooth to moderately technical roots n rocks (and occasional small drop/jump). No mountains in sight just small to medium hills of noted single-track.

    Thinking SS or 1 X 9. Given terrain I described, was thinking 100MM fork, but lobby for 120MM if you think it'd be worth it.

    I am open to either frame material, obviously; the aluminum Yelli seems to be rather compliant as for as alu goes.

    Thanks in advance, hopefully there's a few of there out there who have ridden both!

    I chose the N9 because I wanted the option to run single speed without having to buy gadgets to make it work.

    I went Yelli, I like using a the tapered steerer option and will never go SS. But I'm already saving up for a nimble for XC duties in the near future.

    Hell, just buy both.
