Anyone had to pick between the two? It would be a 9.8 in either. I do XC racing and endurance. I’ll have a hard tail for my local races but my favorite is 50 mile races. It seems the top fuel is what I’m looking for. I don’t get to race as much as I used to and like to do all day rides and just want a fun bike. I would be waiting for um awhile for the top fuel but the fuel ex I can get now. my main question is what it gives up on climbing in a race compared to top fuel and other xc bikes.
