    29 stumpjumper carbon comp v expert

    Looking at buying a ht 29er, these two seem very simular except the wheels and forks. Has anyone any experience with these bikes and thier diferences?
    Is the expert worth the extra cash?

    looks to be more than fork and wheels. from what i can tell the expert has better:
    -fork with brain fade
    -brakes
    -rear derailleur
    -shifters
    -crankset
    -bottom bracket


    Now someone with more knowledge and experience may be able to help you further. But it looks worth the upgrade to me.

    from my snooping around on the net, it seems the expert is worth the extra cash, unfortunatly I can only get the comp here in spain, so i am looking elsewhere. I really wanted to know the weight of the comp too, i reckon it will come in at 26lbs and the expert 23lbs.
