quick and dirty-Specialized Hardrock or Diamondback Wildwood?
I am looking at buying another bike. Ive had a Specialized Hardrock (90s era) in the past and loved it after some minor mods to grips and tires. The same seller I purchased that one from a year ago has another Specialized of unknown lineage, and a DB Wildwood (http://lincoln.craigslist.org/bik/1188061839.html
) but I know little about Diamondback other than they 'used' to be good bikes according to some.
This seller takes GREAT care of his stuff, so either way Id be getting an almost new bike-I just don't know enough about the DB. Its a comfort, vs. the Specialized MB geometry, im 265-but the MB position didn't bother me that much on the other one. Ill be commuting with it, around 7 mi one way, mostly pavement/street/trail. No Panniers, just a rack of some kind.
Thoughts? Ill get years on them if he emails me back-I know that would help.
