    it really depends on what you're trying to do with the bike. The 999 option has medicore parts but if you were gonna buy those types of parts anyway it would be cheaper in the end.

    hmmm, see I dont have any money thats the problem.... What I really would like to use this bike for is everything that I cant do on a hardtail, big drops, steep rocky sections, other fun stuff. But I dunno because it doesnt even say whats in the sale package so hmmm its kinda a gamble

    wow thats sh!t I would never get that for that much money

    the only one that gets good components is $2000 its a waste of money to get anything less, beacuse youd just spend more money replacing parts
