I am trying to decide between the alloy mega with gx eagle and the carbon base giga, which one should I get?

Hey guys check out my new youtube video going over my Nukeproof Reactor, it is my first proper youtube video, and its unscripted, but ill take all the constructive criticism I can get. I know that I needed more B roll, I just completely ran out of footage. But check it out and lmk what you guys think.

This probably won't help, but it's a new video about the two.

I'm no racer and I also ride slow and with crappy technique. I have a giga on order. More or less, I think it was an impuls buy, not being really rational.
I do, really do hope it will not be as jumpy/springy as it looks in all the videos...while the Mega keep looking unflustered by any type of terrain. In theory, it should be the other way around.

Considering the price for the Giga, now, a couple of months later, I would not make the same choice again. In fact, I'm contemplating canceling my order; the problem is.. there are no other bikes to get these days. If this would be April 2019...I'd cancel my order and get my money back in an instant. Now, most of all decent bikes have a delivery term of 2022.

I have a mega, and if they had the gigs in alloy I would’ve gotten that....

What pressures do you all who run cushcore go with? Always felt the gyroscopic effect of not being able to lean the bike over being more of a drawback than the added cushion, stability ect of having cc front and rear

Without cushcore I was running 24/28 f/r. I’m a newbie to cushcore, and since I’m using DH tires I’ll try 20/24. I’m planning to spend most of my summer riding lifts at Mammoth (I live close). I have yet to go for a ride on my bike though.
