    Bigfoot 1 vs. Sasquatch 1 Rigid

    I'm looking for some feedback on whether or not the jump to a Sasquatch would be worth the $700. Differences being, carbon fork, 197mm TA rear (w/different hub), and NX Eagle vs. NX. I feel the urge to future proof with the through-axle rear and better components, but historically I very rarely change these things.

    The QR rear does kind of annoy me though, if the Bigfoot had a TA, I wouldn't be posting this. I plan on going tubeless as soon as possible, and using it as year-round mountain bike on west coast, pacific northwest trails. Any feedback on the difference between the two?

    Thanks!

    I have one of each.
    Love the geometry of them both- I don't fuss about drivetrain. I honestly don't notice the thru axle differences. I did have to get the shtty SRAM level brakes on both bikes warrantied.

    If it were me I would go with the Bigfoot, put on Shimano brakes and get a set of studded tires- spend the rest on a biking vacation.
