    Vertex 930 or GT Zaskar 9er Expert

    I have a chance to trade in my Trek 4400 and move to "big boy" bike. I've started training for Iron Bike Italy 2012 ( and that's what this purchase will be for.

    Both bikes can be had for basically the same price.

    I don't know enough about mountain bikes yet to make an informed purchase, so I'm hoping someone here can make me an internet expert.

    Can a mod please approve my links/images? I don't have 10 posts yet, but I'm not a bot.

    i have a zaskar pro 9r like it a lot, good bike fast and stiff accelerates well great bike for standing short steep climbs . Not a good endurace bike for me though b/c terrain I ride tends to be rooty rocky and you can take a pounding. It is stiff with seat stragiht stays so you feel the vibration.
    XC, Road, XXC, Endurance, Mtn, All-Mtn, Cross, Gravel, just go have fun on 2 wheels!
