    New AM bike - YT jeffsy AL vs Jeffsy AL comp? worth the extra $500?

    YT Jeffsy 27.5 AL - $2,300

    YT Jeffsy 27.5 AL Comp - $2,800

    The cheaper AL has a Fox float Rhythm 34 fork and the Fox DPS shock
    The AL Comp has a Rock Shox Pike RC fork and Rock Shox Delux RT shock

    I've been riding a 2011 specialized pitch pro with a rock shox sektor and Fox float shock. But other than suspension I'm not too sure what I should be weighing out here for "is it worth the extra $$".

    This will be the last bike I buy for a long time so I have no problem spending a little more if there's an argument to be made but a little research made it sound like the "lower end" fox rhythm is a pretty awesome fork.

    Hoping people are up for weighing in on this decision, I am also still open to other (similar) bikes for anyone who wants to make an argument

    Those look like roughly equivalent builds to me, so i must be missing something. The pike RC is OK, and the rhythm is OK, but i've only demo'ed both (i liked the rhythm more). I'm interested to see a strong case for the comp.

    The $2300 model is not in stock, so the $2800 model wins :-D
