    Tough decision. hoffmans are very good bikes, but so are Easterns. I'd go with the Eastern, I've ridden an Eastern Jane its a good bike.

    I don't care about the front brakes. Disrupter seems a little more durable than Rythm (Rythm is lighter though, by .25 lb. ). Im talking about 2006 models here, so cassete hub and 30/11 gearing (OH YEAH!).

    Why is K2 out?

    I've looked at Specialized Fuse IV... I think I'm gonna get off, it's so hot. But $600 is more than Disrupter or Jane. What do you think?

    So, which is it guys: Fuse IV 2006 or Distrupter PL1 2006?
    And most importantly - why?
    Thanks

    The Fuse is most definitely the way to go. I'd explain, but I don't feel like doing that again.
