Downtube - 9 vs. 9NS vs. 9FS - Whats the best deal?
I've decided to buy a Downtube, I'm just not sure which model.
It's my first folder, and I'm just a casual rider, im 6'0 and about 205lbs.
Im looking at the
Downtube 9 (Front Suspension Only) - 329.00 ----Cheapest
Downtube 9FS (Full Suspension) - 369.00 ----??? Best Deal?
Downtube 9NS (No Suspension) -379.00 ----Lightest
At first glance it seems the Full Suspension is the best deal, but what is it missing? or what are the main differences? I know it doesn't come with a Rack, Kickstand, and Fenders like the other two models, but im thinking that full suspension is more important than those things. is that the right thinking? Can add them on later if i want?
Also why would the No Suspension be more expensive than the Front Suspension? Shouldn't it be the other way around?
Is there anything else I'm missing? I don't understand some of the terminology used in the descriptions (Cold forged crank?, Sealed Cartridge bottom bracket?...???)
Is the Full Suspension the best deal right now?
I just wanna get the most bang for my buck
