Do you want to ride XC or downhill? VT2 is heavy bike. It is intended for heavy duty downhill ride it also weighs more the FSRxc comp. I would buy the FSRxc comp if I were you. FSRxc is lighter and better rear suspension with fox R rear shock. The VT2 has rockshox psyloxc shock which isn't as good as Fox rear shock.Lee said:the vt-2 is $1250, the FSRxc comp is $1299
The FSRxc comp is perfect at your weight level. Don't get the Giant. You will sweat alot pedaling up hill with that bike. It's quite heavier than FSRxc comp. Go buyit before someone else grab itLee said:I'm 5' 11 155lbs
I went to buy a 2004 Stumpjumper Hardtail that I saw yesterday for $999 but today it was GONE! I was bummed out man!
But then I saw this 2005 I belive? Does the price of $1299 sound right? FSRxc Comp
I realise it's not a hardtail but I live in New England (lots of trails and I LOVE trailing even though I will be road biking a lot to the trails) I feel the full suspension is better.
