    2012 Team RSL vs. 2013 999 RSL

    I am trying to decide which frame to buy and build.

    I understand that the 2013 Fox shock has the new C-T-D features, but the 2012 frame is $1K less then the 2013.

    Can anyone shed any light on why I would spend that money on the 2013 frame instead of upgrading components?

    Am I missing some differentiators form 12-13?

    Get the 29er. I love my Element 950.

    Went riding with a buddy with a 26er the other day...for our conditions my 29er out-shined his 26er on everything but the climbs.
