    Someone please alleviate my fears on the 6x6 Team vs Hal6 Pro!

    Hi all, I ordered a Hal6 Pro for pre-order a week ago. Estimated ship date is at least a month away. Wifey's 527HT came a few days ago. Cue the bike fever. I have previously ridden XC semi-pro in Australia for years, but now live in WNY (very near Ellicottville Icon trails.) long story short, I haven't owned a bike in 7 years, and the bike fever got me. Switched my order to the closeout 6x6 team that was in stock. Gets here tomorrow... Am I going to regret this decision? Should I send it back and wait for the HAL 6 Pro?

    Please help!

    Any thanks a million!

    Aaron

    I would have said to switch it out because the 6x6's geometry appears quite a bit older than the HAL6. Then again I'm naive and biased towards the HAL6 that I plan on getting.

    That was my only misgiving. Spec list is a little better on the 6x6, and even got a few of their famous "free upgrades" such as 9000 clutched rear vs 900 series XTR as well as the XT pods instead of SLX. I have to say, it's a murdered out, sinister looking beast. I've named it Darth Vader...

    Didn't know they gave random free upgrades. I'm assuming they are trying to clear out the old inventory and using up leftovers.

    I assume that as well... Regardless, I'm certainly not complaining. It's 2 degrees outside, but the bike felt great running up the block and back...

    Did a quick 5 miles on the flats. There's a jump park nearby. Wow... This rig is amazing. No regrets!
