Trying to decide between 2 Hybrid bikes help!

Fisher Montare or Specialized Crosstrails expert

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trying to decide between both of these hybrids. I usually ride pavement 50% trails 50% . No agressive riding. Sand or hard trails in state parks
Any Preferences? Hard to compare side by side since no shops have both in stock ever.
I am 5' 8" and weigh 190.
I am leaning toward the specialized bike right now. Its also a little bit cheaper.
Thanks
Larry

The Specialized Crosstrails is just the updated version of the Crossroads..they added disk brakes and took away the lockout fork feature..its basically a good bike thats easy to grow into liking very much and enjoy upgrading(if you"re into that) But! ..its definitly more for the bumpy roads and it is NOT A TRAIL BIKE, although easy ,hard packed trails are no problem...go for it.
