New bike. Best bang for the buck?
I pretty much need a new XC HT since my old 4300 is crapping up really bad everywhere except the frame.
So, whats are some great value 06 mtb's that are either 8 or 9 speed with disc brakes for around 480-600$?
I thought about the Haro V4 but today my service tech said the frame is mediocre for some reason.=/
-My other top pic would be a hardrock comp disc in that cool army color
its an 8spd but oh well.
-Maybe a fisher piranha but I dont want to spend over 600.
-Is Scott's Voltage Yz3 ok? The parts seems sort of cheap. Or perhaps the reflex 40.
-But wow a 9sp Jamis CC 2.0 for 435. Pretty good deal I think.
-Maybe a kona blast?
-The kona lava dome looks sweet..9sp steel
but purple on a bike i ride sux.
So what are some other sweet deals I should look into?
