    Scott Spark 940 - 2018 or 2019?

    Hi,

    I am currently thinking about buying a Scott Spark 940 (mainly because I can get a good discount at a Scott dealer in my country).

    I have the choice between the 2018 model and 2019 model. They are quite similar, however, some components have changed between the two models. The main differences are: fork, brakes, gear shifter.

    The 2018 model is equipped with:
    Fox Performance fork
    SRAM GX shifter
    Shimano MT500 brakes

    The 2019 model is equipped with:
    Fox Rhythm fork
    SRAM NX shifter
    Shimano M7000 brakes

    Based on what I know about the components, the 2019 is superior in terms of brakes, where as the 2018 model is superior in terms of fork (Performance is considered slightly better than Rhythm, right?) and shifter.

    Full specs on the two bikes are here:
    2018: https://www.vitalmtb.com/product/gui...park-940,22918
    2019: https://www.vitalmtb.com/product/gui...park-940,23893

    If the price is the same, what bike would you choose? Also, how much cheaper would your second choice of bike have to be, to make you buy that one instead?

    Best regards,
    Soren
