Need some info on these two frames. LBS has a 10' Yeti 575 with a mix of XT/ lower end parts. They have a 25% off so it will go for $1950. Competiting LBS can build a 10' Pivot Mach 5 XT/SLX build for 15% off for about $3200. The Pivot has better parts from memory, but this price dif is too much to ignore. Both have the same suspension forks (fox 32) and rear shock (RP23?)
I have ridden both and the Pivot is better.....less pedal bob and has plush suspension. The Yeti is close and would meet my current needs.
What are the pros/cons of each machine? Single pivot vs DW link, Company reputation, etc.....
Each machine is light years away from my 90' MB1.
