I had debated between the XT225 and the TW200 a year ago and the XT won out due to it just seemed to be able to do a wider variety of things than the TW (I have a commute that involves highway speeds and the XT just seemed to be a little happier at 65mph ... actually the TW couldn't even get there or at least the one I test rode couldn't). I have taken my XT camping down in the NJ Pine Barrens, riding the fire roads and just basic errand running.

As far as seat height goes, being that the XT is so light and narrow, I was able to keep it at the stock height. Being 4'11" and not having many bikes that I can touch the ground on at the stock height is a great thing.
