Now before I get flamed, I need to preface this by saying a few quick things:
1. I've been out of riding for a number of years and am very excited about getting back into it. That being said, I've done hours of reading on catch-up research here in the forums and all over.
2. The Maestro (Giant) system is new (at least for me) and seems very impressive.
3. The FSR design has been around for a while. I dont think it has changed much...?
So, I need some objective advice about which you would recommend for me.
I'm 5'11" 185lbs. Intermediate rider. Mainly XC, I guess. Singletrack, drop-offs here and there, etc etc. Nothing EXTREME. Somewhat aggressive rider.
I want something that is going to ride efficiently. Climbs well (technical climbing, too), pedaling power going to wheels and not the rear shock (pogo stick effect on my 10yr old GT iDrive), etc, etc.
Please shed some light on why you would recommend the FSRxc RIM (cant afford COMP) over Giant's system.
Are they both VPP-like systems? Either better than the other?
Components are comporable, I think.
I'm hoping this helps others, and not just me.
