26 nimbus oracle, or 24" kris holmes?

Which one is "better"? i.e, stronger? I've heard kris holmes' are nearly indestructable, but I like how the nimbus has the disc brake, for 30.00 more. But are the nimbus' up to par with the kris holmes'?

Yes, they are on par, just different, kinda like bikes or computers.

I have two of each, they all work fine. Strength is a non issue for 99.99% of the riders out there, so don't sweat durability.

They are made in the same factories, if that helps.

More agile: 24
More speed: 26

KH and Nimbus Oracle are made in 24 and 26

Oh, I had no idea they were made in the same factory, Is there anything on the oracle that you would change/switch out for something else? I'm most likely going to switch the saddle out for a KH fusion freeride, but is there anything else?

Buy a used one

Try before you buy, look for a forum member near you who has one you can try.

You can only change what they'll let you change, but the KH Freeride is a good seat.
