Got to ride a nugget yesterday
WOW that thing is nice. I was very impressed. To me kind of reminds me of a teocali a little at a distance. I saw it being rode and then saw it out of the corner of my eye and asked what it was, thats when I found out it was the 09' nugget. Then I was offered a chance to take it for a spin. It was defenatly a nice riding bike. I'm now torn if I should hold off till next year and save for a nugget or go a head and buy a teocali which I want now. AHAHAHAH what to do.

Well, two totally different bikes, really. The Teo is an XC rig, the Nugget is a short travel killin machine. The Nugget's purpose is Slopestyle, Dirtjumping, 4X racing, Dual slalom, etc. Everything too rough for a hardtail but a bigger bike would be slower/less nimble.
However...I'm looking at a Nugget or an older EC-X to serve as my "aggro XC" rig, Which means pretty much EVERYTHING I do on a bike except DH, which I have my ECD for.
If ALL you want to do is XC type trails, the Teo might be the choice? But it's just a bicycle, so it really doesn't matter! Get something that makes you smile and pedal!
