    Like new 2016 Hei Hei Trail DL or new 2017 Hei Hei 29 ?

    Can get a like new 2016 Hei Hei DL Trail for about $1000 less than buying a new 2017 Hei hei 29 (both 29er alu versions).

    2016 has Fox suspension (34mm fork), Novatec hubs/Stan's 25mm rims, full XT brakes and drivetrain, no dropper post.

    2017 has RS suspension (32mm fork), Deore/WTB 29 rims, SLX/XT mix, KS Eten dropper.

    Otherwise specs are pretty much the same.

    Q: Pay 1000$ more for a the 2017 (and get the warranty) or go for the better specced 2016 (or negotiate price down) ?

    Thanks !

    Another vote here for the 2016.

    I own the 2016 DL Trail and it is a great bike. I have upgraded quite a few things, but dropper/tires/carbon bars made 90% of the difference. You'll be able to get those with a wad of cash leftover.
