    08 or 09 RX 29er

    I am looking to get my first 29er. What is the differance between the 08 and 09 RX 29er.

    Thanks

    They are identical. I saw some being blown out on chainlove for crazy prices. (900 I think) Look on there maybe another one will pop up.

    ... the 08 is powder coated finish red with black rear triangle, and the 09s are black anodized finish. I dunno the exact weight, but in theory, the powder coat will weight around 80-100g more....I would think.

    As far as anyone has reported, NADA, just you can find the '08s being blown out around the web for as said around $900-$1000. Buy the '08 for a steal and be happy.

    Only red?

    Don't know about you, but I am tired of all the red RX29ers and would much prefer black ano.

    So cool looking http://www.titusti.com/titus09/bikes/cc_racerxal.php

    Unless I had a bunch of red ones on hand like Chainlove. Then I guess I would learn to like it.

    Yeah black on black is sexy.

    But so is the green color of the $1000 dollars you save by buying an 08.
