I am going to buy a 2013 Vertex 29er, I have a good price on both top end models.
I have the spec and both bike have identical frame, bar, stem, post but have some "major" differences in the following aspects:
-sid xx world cup fork
-full sram XX
-dt swiss 1.4 hubs/rims (OEM?)
-full sram XO (s2200 crank)
-dt swiss 1.5 hubs/rims (OEM?)
The bike will be used for a lot of training and racing. I know I like top stuff and LIGHT stuff. I am pretty sure I will be selling some take offs and replace them with lighter components I already have or will purchase like:
ENVE flat bar (got it)
temporary KCNC stem (got it)
when fit is dialed ill get a proper stem (length, rise, weight) (dont have)
XX gripshift (dont have)
sram quarq powermeter (got it)
light seatpost (dont have)
carbon saddle (got it)
so I will be selling brand new: bar, stem, saddle, seatpost, triggers, 180mm rotor.
What would you guys buy? I can have the 999 rsl for 1500$ more then 990 rsl.
