can't decide between Cube Ltd SL 650b black/green

or

Cube Reaction GTC 650b black/red

The reaction has the manitou forks, and XT/Deore throughout and is carbon fibre, whereas the Ltd SL has Fox 32 float forks and XT throughout.

Both lovely bikes.

I think with the spec on offer and the fact that it is only 500 grms heavier My choice would be the LTD. but that is because i use mine as a commuter and strength and reliability are key.

I guess it depends on what you are going to use it for and if the weight saving and stiffness of carbon is of benefit to you.

Living where I do, I do alot of XC, taking in the forest trails and odd downhill, but nothing gnarly, too old for that!

Did buy a Norco Fluid 7.2 HT in March but it broke and nearly broke with it, so been offered 1 of these 2.
