    Choices, choices....advice on which ride?

    I'm 6'0", 225lbs, and ride fairly aggressive xc, only single speed. Right now I'm set up on a santa cruz chameleon, but I have the option to do a straight trade with a surly instigator (same size and fit). I know it's 2lbs heavier and vertical drops and all, but is there anything else I should know (AKA, which one should I get/keep)?

    Thanks

    No, and No again.

    Get a 29er, in this case a Karate Monkey, and be done with it.

    You can't sling a dead cat without hitting a fantastic deal on a frame/fork/King HS for $250.

    I'm all out of cats. Where is that deal?

    To the OP, I think you'd be happier on the Surly in the long run... But I agree with ncj01 that you are a perfect candidate for a 29er.
