I was refered here from the general forums as maybe this forum might have some people with more specific knowledge on these bikes.
So I've gone out and done some research. I'm looking into these bikes:
From a local Bike shop:
Gary Fisher Advance (lifetime on frame)
Trek 3900 (lifetime on frame)
From a second local Bike shop:
Raliegh Mojave 2.0 (5 years on frame)
From Dicks Sporting goods
Mongoose Sector (30 days or 3 years for $50)
Any thoughts? The mongoose definately gives me the most and is I believe also the cheapest but from Dicks (which actually does have a guy that does the bikes and services them etc. but nothing like a real bike shop I don't think) The Trek 3900 is pretty tempting.
