    2016 5010 R or 2015 5010 CC XT?

    If you could choose between a 2016 R or a 2015 CC XT, assuming they go for the same price, which one would you pick?

    Is the new frame that much different from V1?

    I vote 2016 you will have the newer geo and won't have to look back. Theres some nice prices for the 2015 but just ride the 2016 and upgrade the specs later.

    Be nice to hear from someone thats been on both?

    2016 if for no other reason than to stave off the new model envy. You can update at your leisure. That being said I bought a 2015 Bronson and could care less about the V2 as the '15 is still one hell of a bike. Good luck!

    2016, the new frame geometry and subsequent ride characteristics is so much more important than the specs. Plus the redesign on the lower link.

    Thanks for all the advice. Yes, 2016 makes sense. I only had a chance to ride the 2015 model a while ago. I ended up with a very good deal on a 2015 used Bronson C R, maybe better for terrain I usually ride - rocks roots drops etc...

    If you up-date the v1 with -1 deg headset and cc inline, it is excellent as well and very close to v2 as geometry at least with bigger end frame size. But rarely look back after buying the most new model.. Haven't tested v2 myself
