Ok, hopefully this thread will do better here than in the DH froum seeing how this is the SPECIALIZED forum.

I am getting a new rig this week and its either the '07 SX Trail1 or the '07 Demo 7.
I want to do some races such as Sea Otter, Downieville, Firestone and Fontana.... and maybe wherever else I can squeeze in or afford to travel too. I've never raced before but I get the gist and just think it would be fun to compete. I am pretty much limited to specialized which isn't a bad thing. Which bike would you choose? Also, sizing. I am 5'10 and about 185-190 lbs. would you say Med?

I'll put up a poll incase anybody doesnt feel like writing.

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions. -N8
