Both bikes are 2008 and are the same price.

Looks like the same forks on each.
Some components are a little different but not much.

Which is better, more plush, what would you do?

Sunday.

The mongoose is probably a turd on the trail
I love it when people base perceptions hear say. PROBABLY? Don't post that ****. Especially when you hear it.

Anywho to answer the question I have ridden both and will probably order the ecd here in a couple months when it goes on sale.

If you have the money get the sunday. I would. If you don't get the ec-d. Sunday is a true sled and dh specific. The ec-d is more freeride capable. The ec-d is amazing and you should get it if you don't want to drop the extra GRAND!

I Don't think you can go wrong either way, but I think the better ride and value is with the Mongoose, I've ridden them both.
I also got a sneak peek at the 09 Mongoose bikes and all I can say is WOW!
Suspension technology is moving fast and Mongoose is taking full advantage.
I will see if I'm allowed to post pics of the new bikes yet.

If it is your only bike, get the Mongoose. If it is for shuttling and lift access only get the Sunday.
I second this statement. Mongooses freedrive system is amazing and will make a heavy bike pedal like it's everybit 5+lbs less than what it acually is.

Ive ridden a sunday and I own an 08 ecd. They both have a very different feel on the trail, but I feel the ecd is a better fit for me and in my opinion a better bike.

The best thing you can do is go out and ride both of them.

These threads are always minimally useful.

Those two bikes are going to ride very differently. I was never fond of the Sunday, nor its DW Link designed suspension. I've always stuck by and liked single pivot designs, or just simple designs in general. The reasons to get a Sunday in this thread so far are pretty redundant: 1. Its more reputable? Why? Cause Sam Hill rides ones? Or are they reputable because the Linkage sucks and it comes loose on its own. 2. Looks. Function before fashion.

I'm not a huge fan of the Sunday. I really encourage the original poster of this thread to test ride a Sunday. Some people absolutely love them, some people don't. I'm not saying its a bad bike, its a good bike and they've made improvements to it, but you really need to make sure that you like the DW Link design and the geo the Sunday offers. Its a very fast bike.

The EC-D is a pretty solid rig too for the price. Both bikes are spec'ed pretty well for their price tags. It's all going to come down to which frame suspension design you like best and which geo you see fit.
