I have a Felt six that is just 2 big for me. (19" and 5'9"). I could try to change seat position and stem length, but I want to go to a 29".



I am looking at a couple of choices and would like input

2013 holdover Trek Mamba for $799
2014 Trek 8 for $949


I am leaning toward the Mamba, but it isn't at the best LBS and it was used as a demo(low miles though) but it is a good price though. SO I am looking for opinions on these or any others that are close. Would like to stay under the 1k mark and away from suntour forks......

The Mamba has XC32 fork. So does the X-Cal 8. Mamba has Shimano and the 8 has Sram. Mamba saves you money because the 8 is not spec'ed equal for more.
