    Need final advise - down to the wire on two bikes

    I'm pretty much down to dropping the credit card info on one of two bikes.


    Specialized Rockhopper LTD 29er (stock)

    or having a custom rig built.

    Vassago Bandersnatch frame
    X7 rear derailleur and X7 shifter (1x10 setup)
    FSA XC-290 wheelset
    Paul components Chain guide
    Rockshox Recon RLT 29er
    Cane Creek headset
    Truvativ 32t 175m crank
    Avid Elixer 3 160mms
    WTB rocket seat

    Both met the bill for what I'm looking to do, but that Vassago looks like it'll be a sick build.


    Opinions, lulz, other anecdotal information?

    Thanks in advance

    Personally I find a custom is worth a bit more to the person that uses that item. Be it a Computer or a Bike. I build my own but I could buy a stock. I prefer the custom. I build computers not bikes yet.
    Buy the components, as you know what your looking for rather than what a company put together.
