GT Avalanche 1.0 versus Avalanche 2.0

I have £500 to spend to replace my GT Outpost, I was set on on the 1.0 but saw the 2.0. The LBS said that the frame was the same, both have hydraulic discs, however the only real difference seems to be the 1.0 has 9 speed, the 2.0 has 8 speed.

The 1.0 is £499, the 2.0 is £399. Is the extra gear worth £100 ??

I know this may sound over simple or have I missed something in the spec.

Was set on the 1.0, but is it worth the extra money ? :?:

Thank you for the help

    The fork is better, with 32mm alloy stanchions, and seperate compression and rebound circuits. Also the wheelset is improved, and a better crank. Basically they are equally good value, you are fetting an extra 100 quid of kit.

    Thanks for the quick response, I should have read the spec better.

    The 1.0 it is then.

    Thanks again
