I'm looking at buying my first bike, I do have experience on borrowed bikes and am a mid-upper pack B rider. I have narrowed it down to the XC line but do not know the true riding differences between these two bikes. Any feedback would be appreciated.

The 250 is similar to a motocross bike in the way it likes to be revved while the 300 has more bottom end with a tractor like feel.

The 300 is pretty similar to a 4 stroke.

Both are sweet bikes.

Grew up racing downhill mountain bikes, went pro around 18 and there are a lot of similarities between the sports.

Sounds like the 300 is the way to go. looks like it will be easier getting my hands on a TX300. Looks like the TX and XC bikes are nearly identical, (outside of magura clutch and breaks) is this true?

Yeah. I have a 2018 TX300 and it is an awesome bike. It does great on the track as well. The torque the bike has will allow 3rd gear through most turns on a track and everything but the tightest of trails. I can't recommend the 300 enough.

Go Hawks!

Depends on your style really, if you are aggressive and like to make a 2stk bark get the 250. If not go with the 300, like mentioned above the 300 has more torque and bottom end which helps for hill climbing or running a gear high and staying smooth. I had a 17 250xc and now have a 19 300xc and I prefer the 300.

I think it depends on what you want to do with it but also what your riding style is. If you want to race/track it then I would probably lean towards the 250, if you want to ride trails/single track/ off-road then I would lean towards the 300. If you like to ride aggressively and rev the bike then I would lean towards the 250. If you like to keep the RPMs lower and tractor, then I would say 300. I bought my first 300 this year and for offroad riding its the best bike I've ridden, hands down. My 450 collects dust now.
