SunTour XC

Anybody know the differences between the various levels-- pro, comp, expert, 9000, etc.-- in the SunTour XC lineup?

good questions, I always assumed that pro was top like superbe pro... I didn't know there was and XC expert. I figured comp was next in line after pro but now I would wonder if it went pro, expert, comp...

It changed over the years. XC Pro was the best of the last groups. Here's some info:
