Thanks for all the research and information you have provided.  Have a great day everyone and Ride On! 
 
Thanks for the information mtnryder. I'm really looking forward to this trip and hope it goes down without a hitch. I'll definitely check out as many trails as I can while I'm there.
I will add that I recently added a PNW dropper post on my Talus and it has definitely made riding that much more fun.
My first bike was and still is a Raliegh Talus 29er that I still have to this day. It is an entry level mountain bike but has served it's purpose for me. I got into the sport (2013) later than I wish I had but am glad that I did. When I bought it the…
 
Marty - I appreciate all the suggestions and I will definitely hit you up as it gets closer. Take care, God bless, and ride on!

There are a few other differences outside of the groupset but I can live with them.

The Hub at Coler Trail in Bentonville, Arkansas
I read this article a few days ago and lo and behold I crashed while out riding yesterday. The trail I rode is for the most part a narrow singletrack with a lot of roots, tree stumps, and rocky sections. I went over the bars and scraped up my left knee and shin and have…

Is the SRAM GX Eagle groupset worth the extra $$$ you pay over the NX groupset?  Is it that much better in it's performance to justify the extra cost?
