    Are the differences between the 08 and 09 worth at least $550 to you?

    If not, get the 08.

    The 08 seems like the way to go unless you really need an extra 20mm of travel and more seat post adjustment. Those are things you can always upgrade later though if it is absolutely necessary. I like both the brown and the red for the 08 as well. That would be the toughest choice for me!:)
