I wouldn't sell my 950 for $20,000. I love it that much! No other manufacturer has built anything that comes close, as Chris says.

Sorry for your dilemma.

The older S models have more travel, if that interests you. My 05.5 forks have 11.8", with more than 13 in the rear! If you're gonna single track, it's the best option.
