Hi All, Need a professional opinion here to make a decision on buying a bike...


Three options:


$950 2016 Rocky Mountain Whistler 50
Whistler | Rocky Mountain Bicycles


$1000 2015 Rocky Mountain Whistler 70
Whistler | Rocky Mountain Bicycles


$1149 2016 Rocky Mountain Whistler 70
Whistler | Rocky Mountain Bicycles




I don't understand the componentry that well (and what is best), so I'm not sure which one represents the best deal.


The 2015 Whistler 70 seems like an enticing option, as it is only $50 more than the 2016 50, but how much


better of a bike is it? I'm looking to compare and contrast these bikes at their various price points.




All opinions welcome. Thanks! :)

For the additional $50 get the 2015 Whistler 70. It gives you a 10 speed cassette vs 9 and Deore components.

BTW, I am not a professional wrench...but I am paid to recognize the best value between multiple proposals. :)

Awesome! Thanks. Just the type of feedback I'm looking for! So, you don't think its worth the extra $150 CDN to go for the 2016 70?
