I know the Expert is around 32# and the SXT around 40#, but where is the weight? I know a couple of pounds are in the fork, and I'm assuming that some is in the tries/tubes. Am I missing anything else?
Also, there are the same frames with different paint, right? I'm trying to figure out which way to go between these two. Right now I'm thinking the Expert might be better, but I am wary of the air shock. I love the build of the SXT, but not the height of the fork (seems like it would be WAY too slack for general trail riding - which in my case means really technical singletrack with tons of short climbs and descents). I think the perfect bike would be a blend of the two: an Expert with a coilover rear shock and a bash guard (and a higher rise bar); or an SXT with a 36.
Any words of wisdom?
