I put a $100 deposit down the GF X-cal, rode the 17.5, ordered a 15.5; $1400.
BUT...Also rode the Exile II and liked it, waiting for LBS to get the exile III in this week in my size...he was going to order it anyways..

Wanted to know if those who own the Exile III considered the GF X-cal, same price range and if so - what led you to pick the Exile III?

thanks in advance!

BTW I'm 5'5-5'6, with 29-30 in seam, 165 lbs...if that makes a difference
