    Decisions Decisions - Rocky Mountain Element

    In my quest for a new bike I'm heavily considering a RM Element.

    I've been offered the following for about the same price, not 100% sure which way I should go, what would you choose?

    Option 1: 2018 Rocky Mountain Element C50
    + Fox Transfer Dropper post

    Option 2: 2017 Rocky Mountain Element 930
    + Fox Transfer Dropper post
    swap fork for Fox 34 Factory
    swap drivetrain for SRAM GX Eagle

    I wanted a 2018 Element C70 but there's none left in my size. Otherwise I might go and look at a Blur but not sure if I want to spend that much money.

    The 2018 C50 has an alloy rear triangle, so if you plan to keep the bike more than a season, the 930 spec says that it has the full carbon frame (you might want to confirm that as the website image for the 930 is the 950). Everything else can be upgraded, but you'd want the best frame as a starting point if you plan to keep it for 2-3 seasons.
