Which bike should I get?
Specialized Hardrock for $250
Raleigh m50 for $300
Fisher Tarpon for $275
Or any online deals to recommend?
Saw these in the nearby stores on sale. I used to BMX, want to get back into biking, but don't want to spend a lot on a bike until I'm sure I'm sticking with it. Mostly road going, but there will be some rough terrain involved so I don't want to go with a hybrid, I was pretty reckless when I used to BMX so I expect that my mountain bike will be put through the same conditions...
The aluminum really doesn't have that much of a weight advantage over the chromalloy, fork is pretty cheap so it doesn't sway me either way.
From the reviews I'm reading people do seem to like the Raleigh, but I think $300 may be a bit expensive for it?
