    2011 left over Anthem x2 or 09 XTC carbon

    As the title states, looking at those two bikes... I can get the Anthem (new) for $1300 out the door from my LBS or the 09 XTC used. I am a very new rider but am realizing that I Really enjoy riding. I originally wanted to stick with a hard tail for weight purposes and I'm in FL so not exactly a lot of descents to deal with... but the thought of being able to do some drops etc with the Anthem is attractive.

    I've bought a lot of used bikes but I'd be somewhat leery of a used carbon frame without a warranty. Both 26er's? A full suspension 26 still works but if I was buying a hardtail it'd be a 29er. Otherwise two very different bikes, depends on what you'll be doing most. Good luck!
