    Specialized Rockhopper Pro Disc vs. Bianchi KingBee?

    I'm thinking about buying a MTB in the future (riding a cyclocross bike now).

    The Specialized Rockhopper Pro Disc looks pretty nice, but for the same price, the Bianchi KingBee seems to offer a little more (Hayes hydraulic disk brakes, clipless pedals....).

    I searched the forums and KingBee turned up no hits. My LBS is a Bianchi dealer and I'm happy with their service. Is the KingBee NOT a good choice for an all-around MTB?

    Thanks for any input,

    The KingBee is a nice bike and has a decent spec list. Bianchi bikes are good quality. I road a Bianchi mtb for 9 yrs when I first started mtb'ing and that bike took a hell of a lot of abuse. The other nice thing about the Bianchi is that not many mtb'ers have one so you get the coolness factor there.

    Both bikes are good. Both will do the job but my preferance is the K.B. just because I own and ride a couple of Bianchi cycles

    I agree, they are both good, but the Bianci has the cool factor, cause they are not as common. It's a tough choice though, because the specialized is also quite nice.
    I think if I were in your shoes, I would be leaning towards the Bianci though.
