Which one should I go with? I'm not rich, so this is a pretty big investment for me... I'll be using the bike mainly for singletrack, general around town use, a tad bit of freeriding. Thanks for any input. I've done plenty of searches and found good info, I'm just doing one last run-by on you kind folks here at bikeforums.net.
SC superlight, CK hs/wheels, XT, Race Face, blah blah blah
Santa Cruz, best customer relations I have dealt with in the bike world. Assuming it is in your price range, get it. It also has some "drool-factor" being that it is a small, in-house company. At least it was in house... Anyway, the Chamelion will not break, nuff said.
