Hi all,

I'm looking for a bike below the 400 mark.

I went to see the Specialized hardrock pro but whilst there I noticed the Aspect 45 and I preferred the shape and layout of this bike and felt better to sit on. However, I do also like the sound of the Avalanche 2.0 and I haven't seen that in the flesh yet. I plan to test all 3 at a carpark somehwere to get a better feel. However - do you guys have any thoughts before I rely just on my instinct and the salesman!
