Newbie needs help-can't decide btw the Cannondale F400 & Specialzd Rockhop comp. disc
Hi everyone I need some serious help. I apologize if this comparison has already been made but I could not find one. I am having trouble deciding which bike to buy...either the Cannondale F400 or the Specialized Rockhopper Comp. Disc. I am very new to the sport, I am looking for a bike that will be decent on the mountain but will also get me home. I had the pleasure of test riding both bikes but I am torn. The Cannondale is nice because it has the front lockout, and the suspension is different, it has the Headshock Fatty. On the other hand the Rockhopper is nice because it has disc breaks and I believe a better suspension. I honeslty dont know too much about components but the salesman said the Cannondale is better because of the lock out. Money is not an issue here because I can get both bikes for the same price.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am 5 foor 11inches and weigh 160 pounds, was thinking of a 19inch Rockhopper or a Large Cannondale F400. Thanks for your help
