Ive been narrowing down my selections more and more everyday for the purchase of a new entry level mountain bike. i have a budget of $600. I am mostly interested in trail, up and downhill riding. I found the best bang for my buck with the:
'07 Gary Fisher Mullet:
Manitou Splice Comp with 100mm travel | Shimano Alivio + Shimano EF50 + Shimano Acera | Hayes MX-2 mechanical disc + Alloy platform
'06 Specialized Hardrock comp disc:
Marzocchi MZ-3 with 100mm travel | SRAM derailleurs | Hayes HMX-2 XC, mechanical disc
What do yal think? any other suggestions? Thank you.
