Ok, here is the deal. I purchased a Yeti 575 in December. Love the bike, rides great. It has dramatically improved my skills. The group of guys I ride with primarily consists of 575's and 6 Packs. So after drooling over the Turners, I've got the wife convinced that I need one to take the next step.
So here's the problem. I have been lurking for a while, and have read many, many, many posts comparing TNT and HL. I spoke to Krispy at Go-Ride today and he has 1 HL and several TNT's. So which do I do? The TNT is stiffer, and the first 4" of travel is identical to the HL version. Krispy also mentioned that the TNT will settle a little into it's travel a bit when hard braking which helps keep the rear down, which is helpful on super steep decents. And of course, the HL is great for so many reasons. None of the guys I ride with have the TNT version, so I can't get any info from them on the situation.
So I ride in Phoenix, very technical, slow climbing, and really rough decending. So I would imagine that the HL option is better for me. I am looking for a plush ride with cat-like climbing ability.
What do the experts think? HL, TNT, or shut up and buy a Turner already? I am not asking for reviews, just which would you choose for my situation and why.
Thanks for the help, can't wait to become a homer
