Looking For a 2009...

Hello All,



I am new to the community, and also new to Mountain Biking. After reading the MTB FAQ Forum I would like a little more help.



I am looking to purchase a hardtail. Not sure which one to buy. I have been doing some research and checked out a few on the web and around town.



I am 6'1 and 240lbs with a 30.5" inseam. I was thinking possible a 19" Frame or Large?



These are the bikes I looked at below, but if you have any other suggestions please let me know.

DiamondBack Response Sport
DiamondBack Response Comp
GT Ruckus UF
GT Chucker 2.0
GT Chucker 3.0
Specialized HardRock Sport Disc
Specialized P.1 All Mountain Disc
Specialized RockHopper Comp Disc



I greatly appreciate your opinions and taking the time to respond to my thread. I am looking to purchase the bike within the next few weeks so I look forward to your reply.





Thanks.
