If you watch through the video, there are a few shots that show that it is AWD.

Now I have never seen the inside of that Sprinter, but just the custom work should be enough to keep the "cheap" KTM.

I put new Hepco & Becker Junior 30 side cases on the K13S yesterday, but I don't think that warrants the 6" of snow I got over night.

I suppose I could take one for the team and go buy a snow blower.

I'm in the market. A *bunch* of my friends went with Yetis, most with 29ers. They way they talk, it reminds me of a certain orange kool-aid.

Educate me.

I've only ridden a 575, but I like Yetis. Good, quality feel to them. Plus they're local. That being said, I went with a Specialized over the SB66 for weight and price. It was $500 cheaper and had a dropper post.

I rode 29ers for a few years. I like the quicker stirring of the 26er, so I went back. I'm also on platforms, and I like to go down a lot more than up. Maybe 29ers are more of XC thing...
