Of these two.
If you intend to use suspension then 1995.

If rigid, then whichever seems to fit you the best as there is a change in frame wizzardry between them as it was adapted to boingy forks.

So build one up, ride it, build the other up with these parts, ride it.
Then buy some more parts and build both up.
Keep them both.
Easy.

I don't get it, are they not built yet or something? Agree (sort of) with FluffyChicken, ride them both and see which you like best for yourself.

It was just a general question really, quite interested to see if there was a certain year people liked more. Seems like a 97 Kilauea and the 94's are leading the way.

@FluffyChicken & Hirosawa I've got a 91 that I'm riding, a 95 (frame/forks/stem etc) and only one set of components. You're probably right, should try both out.
