Hi there
I am looking to get a Timberjack for long bikepacking trip.
In your opinion is GX worth the extra cost compared to NX?

- Shocks: NX has Rockshox Judy TK GX has Recon RL
- Brakes: NX has Tektro ND-290 GX has SRAM DM level
- Rear Der: NX has NX1 GX has GX
- rims: NX has WTB Scraper i40 GX has SUNringle Duroc 45


Thanks for the help.

Get the GX1. Better fork, better RD, stouter wheelset with 148mm rear spacing, and the charcoal color looks much better if you can get it.

I had the NX1 for a month and took it back for the GX1. NX was a good bike but it had a frame issue. Used it as a reason to upgrade.

Hi there
May I ask what was the frame issue? I believe that all the TJ models share the same frame?
Thank you

One of the bottle cage points was stripped out. The bushing would need to be pulled and replaced. LBS returned my NX money and I ordered the GX.

Great bike though. The GX is a lot of upgrade for a couple hundred more.
