Wondering if I could get anyone's thoughts on these two models? Willing to spend 1,000-1,500 on a hardtail with 11x42t gears; 27.5-29 and a 2.8-3" tire width. I have to pull out of the FS market this year again, and settle for a good hardtail for the mountains. Going back and forth between the Timberjack GX1 / NX1 and the Growler 40. Been spoiled by my 26" Trek Fuel -- 20lb estimate, even though its not as ideal for rolling over boulder gardens. That's where my fatty takes over as the go-to-bike, although a rigid frame. Thanks in advance for your input.
