So i've narrowed my bike search down to two rigs - A 2014 Santa Cruz Tallboy and a 2014 Cannondale Scalpel. Both would be aluminum. Both would be upgraded to Shimano XT components. I'm torn because, although it shouldn't matter a whole lot, I think the scalpel is a much better looking bike. The Tallboy, as ive heard, is almost the best in the business, and is a super badass bike. I'm also very skeptical of the lefty fork. Does anyone have any expert advice that could steer me in one way or another? Thanks!
