    SunTour XC

    Anybody know the differences between the various levels-- pro, comp, expert, 9000, etc.-- in the SunTour XC lineup?

    Thanks Timj, that helps explain the differences. For now, XC Pro bearing components had grease guard technology, while XC Comp bearing components were sealed. That's the kind of difference I was wondering about...
