Tucano pro might be an o.k bike??, i'd stay away from the suspension ones...and the entry level bikes.
You must be able to get Kona\Trek\Specialized in Germany?
some ideas..the Tucano comes with a better fork -Manitou right?
Well, when shopping -try to find a bike with Marchozzi forks.
Sram instead of Shimano drive components.
Avid over Shimano brake packages. Mind you i've read good things about Magura as a brake company -the Tucano has a type.
Also -everything is the feel, you gotta get a ride in..fit too, these HT frames come in 3 sizes, suggesting a slightly better company than B.S one size fits all with the suspension bikes (2 sizes.)
There is usually more frame size selection in HT frames...15 inch, 17.5, 19, 21.
I don't like the sm\med\lrg sizing idea. Might be o.k for FS, but I would NOT
ride the FS bikes they have.
..all I've got..good luck.
