    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.
    When you get older, much of your hate comes from knowledge and experience, which is why really old people hate everyone

    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.
