Sorry the comparison functionality mustn't be keeping both bikes in the url.
The comparison I was trying to make was between the X6 _Lite_ (rigid fork) and the Strada 600 (ridgid fork). Specifically, where is the $100 Euro diff coming from?
The X6 Lite frame seems beefier, and appears (eyeballing) to have a slightly more relaxed geometry.
The obvious thing there would seem to be road frame versus mountain bike frame. The X6 has a small chain guard too, which is nice. They both have aluminum forks, which I'm not so sure about. Aren't aluminum forks poor for buzz? There blades though so does that help?
Anyways, they are about $1000 CDN at the LBS each. Are these bikes competitive for that price?
