I'd like to give the X YBB a try.
Unfortunately, it's not the kind of bike you find at every corner streets, at least in Belgium.
So, I could buy a second hand frame (2009) for about 60% of the price of a 2012.
If I had to buy a 2012 model, I'd go for a 19".
2009 model TT is 2cm (0.75") shorter, is it still a good choice?
Good thing about the 2009 is that I could use all parts of my current Salsa El Mariachi Ti, even the Lefty fork on it.
Leftys are short (475mm) and I think it Will better suit the geometry of the 2009 model.
I need some advice, should I spend the extra bucks and go for a 2012 model or won't I even feel the difference?
I suppose that a lefty on a 2012 model is not a good option?
