After a month of looking I have narrowed my first serious MTB choice down to three bikes (all hardtail with hydraulic disc setup and all avaiable at the same price). The bike will be used for all aspects of Mountain Biking.
My choices are:
Scott Elite Racing
Specialized Rockhopper Disc
Trek 4900 Disc
Any thoughts or advice or experiences or comparisons would be greatly appreciated......Cheers.

Can't comment on the Scott, they're not sold stateside. Pretty wierd huh?
Of the other two, they're both good bikes. I tend to like the fit and feel of the Specialized, but that's just me. You really should take each bike out for a test ride and find the one that's the most comfy. Buy that one!
Dont mess with the S. Get the RockHopper :D

I say specialized... but then again i'm biased. GO with nuts suggestion of riding them and finding the best fit for you.
Who makes the frames for the Scott?
