Good morning. I have been hunting around on some deals on last years models and came across a deal from WrenchScience that has a 2015 (not last year) Smuggler that you can select from multiple group-sets and then change individual pieces where you desire. Long story short, They had a Smuggler with a XT group set for under $3.5k. Even a XTR group set for around $4.5k. I know there are some differences between 2015 and 2016 and not sure if there will be many changes to the 2017 line, but I guess my question to the experts here is, is the price for a 2015/XT group-set a better overall investment then selecting a 2016/2017? I'm looking for the Smuggler to be a XC/Trail'ish rig ( I live in Texas) but do plan on traveling with it (moved from OR/CO) so I want the ability to rip around and not be limited. I don't mind pedaling a few extra pounds here locally to then also use the same bike on other trails. We might be moving back to those states in a year or two anyway so it would be good to use the same rig again.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
