If you had to choose between only two bikes due to getting a special deal and current budget, a DB Sortie 3.0 (FS) 29er or a DB Overdrive Carbon expert (HT) 29er, which would you choose?</SPAN>

Background: Currently riding lower end aluminum HT 29er (~32 lbs) mostly single-track trails (10-20 mile rides) NE Florida/South Georgia with a lot of roots, quick ups/downs no extended hill climbs/DH's obviously.</SPAN>

From research the sortie 3.0 weighs ~ 32.5 lbs, 120mm FOX Float forks and full XT build including brakes.

Carbon expert weighs ~26.5 lbs, 100mm Fox float forks, X7/29 build avid elixir 7 brakes.

That's a really interesting suspension design. I have a carbon hard tail and aluminum longish travel fs... And I'm in rocky / rooty south florida.

My carbon hard tail is easily faster and climbs hard as f*ck... But my 130mm FS is much more fun :)
