    Response Comp vs Response Sport

    I posted this in the DB/R forum, but this one seems to get more traffic. In addition to the Giant Yukon I am looking at the DB Response Sport and Response Comp. I am looking for help to decide if the Comp is worth the extra cost when compared to the Sport. It seems the comp is the next step up over the sport and Yukon. The cost difference is $450 to $650. The differences between the two are below. Any suggestions?

    These are basically the differences. I'm not familiar enough with the equipment to know if its worth the $450 to $650 price. Help.

    Spend the extra money

    Better fork, better drivetrain components. Well worth the extra money. Check your Private Messages, I have a suggestion for you.
