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.
