Thinking a Tallboy LTa might be my next bike and I'm wondering what others more knowledgeable than I feel would be the best option. Fwiw, I'm 6', 205. Ride NE trails - love to climb as much as descend. Just turned 50 and I'm really just looking for a comfortable kick@ss 29er trail bike.
Option 1 - Dealer has a 2013 large gray in stock with the R AM kit. OTD pricing is $2890 with the brakes being upgraded from the stock Avids to SLX. My only real concern, other than the brakes, is the RS Sektor forks, which I know nothing about.
Option 2 - Dealer orders an "early" 2014 model for me with R AM kit that now comes with a Fox 34 Float CTD forks and Shimano Deore brakes (I like the colors better as well). There are a few additional changes to the kit, but nothing I found that significant. We haven't talked pricing on this option yet ($3200 list), but I'd imagine there isn't a ton of room for the dealer to move.
I have 2 other bike (Yeti575, older Tracer), so other than being excited to make a new purchase, I'm really not in that great a hurry. Basically, I guess, I'm wondering if the Fox forks is worth a little extra time and a couple of extra c-notes?
