    Frame Fight! Kross Big Wheel 29 VS. Trek Marlin 29er

    I have a GT Karakoram 1.0 (L) which is too big for me.
    I'm about 1.80m. I already tried to replace the stem etc. and it helped but now handling is very wubly.
    Now I have an opportunity to replace the frame with something else.
    One of these two:
    New for 2009-10 Kross Big Wheel 29 - 19" size - 145$
    All the info I could find:
    Test roweru Kross Big Wheel - team 29er - bo wielko?? ma znaczenie
    Katalog Rowerowy 2009 - Kross Big Wheel 29"

    OR

    2011 Trek Marlin 29er - 17.5" size - 115$ - used

    I ride mostly on trails. Occasionally jump from the pavement to the road
    It is also important to add that I tried a 17.5" 2015 (as the seller said) marlin and it felt ok - not too small I guess. I couldn't ride it unfortunately. After some reading I found it that it might be a bit different in size than 2011 model, but it might be wrong.
    I would like to learn from your experience. Thanks a lot!
