suggestions? session 9.9, Demo 8 II, anything else?

goods? Bads?

What does anybody think?

considering only trek world racing has really ridden the carbon session, you may not get many useful comparisons yet.

Can't make a comparison to the Demo 8 II for you (haven't ridden one) but I can tell you the Session 9.9 is on another level of performance compared to the 2012 aluminum Session chassis. The 2012 Al Session is a considerably better bike (due to suspension/ geo changes) than the 2011 and prior Sessions. I'll let you do the math........ You'll see more independent reviews of the bike in about a month, although you might want to get an order in soon as there won't be a surplus of the 9.9's. I'd say if you don't like the 9.9, you're probably a roadie and/or hate DH.
