Ok, first mtn bike in over 5 years. After some test rides, I've decided to go with a 29er. My budget is $2000. I will have a 40 mile race on xc ski trails, but most of my riding is recreation on a combination of hard pack, xc ski trails, and single track (I live in Minnesota). Would I be better of with the lower weight of the Motobecane or FS of Spec. (BTW, found the Spec. on sale for $2000, making them the same price)?
