or a gt yukon there both 2006 models price is gt=349.00 the hardrock is 399.00

to me the hardrock looks better made and more upgradeable any info on either bike would be great

Giant yukon because it has a slightly better component spec. And I think that price has been reduced.

At that price range I would mainly be concerned with fit.....

Get something that feels good, then ride it till it breaks

Good luck with the new bike. Those colors are awesome. I think the Specialized is a great choice, but I'm a little biased.
