Option of either - is the Reaction worth the extra £300?

    Look at decent wheel upgrades for the extra £300!
    Constantly trying to upgrade my parts.It is a long road ahead as things are so expensive for little gain. n+1 is always the principle in my mind.

    The frame on the reaction is better than the LTD as is the finishing kit. For example the chainset on the reaction is XT over Deore which alone is ~£120 difference at RRP. Whether those differences are worth £300 to you only you can decide!

    My advice would be to try them and if you prefer the Reaction I'd change the bars to low risers and bin the foam grips becuase in my experience they last about 5 minutes.

    Giving them a try over the next few days. The Reaction has nearly a kilo on the Ltd but I have a couple I could lose too. Good advice on the bars and grips - thx.
