I've read the threads regarding these bikes, but here is MY question:
My style is fast, bummpy trail riding, technical singletrack and general hopping around (manuals, fork hopping etc.) I tried the 2005 Rockhopper Comp (no disc) briefly and it felt like home, but I also wanted to try a Trek 6500 Disc but couldn't find one. Which of the two would best suit my riding style (I'm personally ready to spring for the Rockhopper). Is the Trek worth hunting down for a test? Any other suggestions? General opinions of '05 Rockhopper Comp?
Also, does anyone know what the Rockhopper Comp (no discs) sold for in 2005 (Canadian dollars)? I think I can get it for $799 Canadian... is that a deal or a rip off?
P.S. Thanks for having me at your forum... I love it so far!
