    Opinions wanted on deciding which frame to keep

    So long story short, I purchased a 16 Fatboy SE and now have acquired a 15 SL frame that I bought for the carbon fork. I like the fact that it doesn't have the fd mounts and is in good enough condition that I'm now thinking of taking everything of the SE and putting the build on the SL. Bad part is that I lose my dropper, but I think I can live without it for the clean lines of the SL.

    SE build has
    RF turbine cinch cranks/bb
    XO 10spd w/ wt 28 & sram 1070 11-36
    KMC eco chain
    XT brakes 180/160
    CC 40series hs
    Haven 55 stem
    EC90 bars
    Ergon gs1L grips
    Command 100 drop post
    Fizik Aliante saddle
    Vault flats

    Also have a ec70 post that would fit on SL so there would be no additional cost to throw it all at the SL. The SE is all basically new with only a few casual rides other then my bars/saddle/pedal set up which came from my stumpjumper. The SL has some minor wear from cables and some marking from the rear rotor. I've been thinking about this since the frame/fork showed up and having a hard time making up my mind, so lets see what you all think. At this point I'm leaning towards the SL thinking the SE frame in perfect condition should be no problem selling off.

    Probably look to get 600 for frame/fork/hs/post/binder since it's basically brand new. Medium
