I'm going to buy either the Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 29er or the Stumpjumper Expert EVO R 29er. These two bikes have a price difference of $600.
Normally, if you buy something up front, you get a better deal. So I am expecting if I spend the extra $600 now, instead of next year I should get a better deal. However, when I analyze the parts, I cant see where the extra $600 is!?
Brakes: Avid Elixir CR SL vs. Avid Elixir R SL. Maybe +$140
Crank: SRAM S2200 vs. S1250. Maybe +$50?
Fork: Reba RLT 29 w/brain vs. Reba RLT 29. Maybe $300?
Handlebar: Specialized SWorks XC carbon vs. Specialized XC flatbar. no idea$$?
rear derailleur: SRAM X.0 10 spd vs. SRAM x.9 10 spd. $100
Is this really $600 worth of stuff? Would I be happier to fork over the extra money now, or later?
Note: I don't race and don't make any money with my bike...
Edit: I missed the upgraded rear derailleur. I think it hits $600 right there.
