05 Cannondale F600
05 Santa Cruz Chameleon
05 Specialized Hardrock Comp
Which one should I go with? I'm not rich, so this is a pretty big investment for me... I'll be using the bike mainly for singletrack, general around town use, a tad bit of freeriding. Thanks for any input. I've done plenty of searches and found good info, I'm just doing one last run-by on you kind folks here at bikeforums.net.

I'd go with the santa cruz, cause I don't like cannondale and haven't dealt much with specialized, but a friend of mine loves his santa cruz super light.

hardrock is worth looking at .test ride em buy what you like.

Santa Cruz, best customer relations I have dealt with in the bike world. Assuming it is in your price range, get it. It also has some "drool-factor" being that it is a small, in-house company. At least it was in house... Anyway, the Chamelion will not break, nuff said.

And it will hold its resale value MUCH better than the other ones you listed.

Well hardrock isn't even in the same league as far as frames go.
I would also consider the Canondale Chase as it is more of a comparison to the Chamelion...
