    a decision to make - Spark 920 2013 vs Spark 930 2014

    Hello all,

    Recently I was offered to purchase each of the above bikes at the same price.

    I'm pretty confused. Which to choose, which will be better?

    I'm riding a Spark 60 2010 which serves me well. Will I really feel the difference?

    Yoav.

    I've got the 2013 Spark 920 and I think it's a great bike. That being said I think the Fox rear shock is worth going for the 2014 930. The groupset is not much between the two - I was looking between the 930 and 920 for 2013 and only chose the 920 because I wanted Shimano SLX/XT over SRAM X7/X9 as I preferred the shift action on the Shimano kit and the paint job on the 920. Faced with the same choice for 2014 I would probably go to the 930.

    You will surely notice the diff between a 2010 Spark 60 (I went from a 2009 Scale 50) to a 2013/2014. Carbon front, better rear suspension set up, twinloc (best part of the bike IMHO), better wheels, better everything.

    Ride both.

    Good luck with your decision...

    Oh and to complicate things - I am thinking of getting a 2014 Genius 710... but not just yet.

    Think 2014 went to interchangeable rear drop outs also.

    What did you decide to buy and do you have any advice for someone trying to choose b/t 2014 Spark 900 premium and 2015 920? The 2015 is $800 less and better warranty b/c the 900 is a demo.
