Looking at getting a new MTB bike. I have an old steel(cromo) rockhopper with rigid fork. It will be for all around use, some road, mostly trails, maybe some intermediate stuff. After research here I think a HT makes the most sense though I am feeling seduced by the FS !
Anyways, I like the Caldera over the Nunu due to the hydro breaks (opinions?). I have not ridden the Giant but will this weekend. Thoughts? These are all about 600-800 US ish.
My only real concern is the raised handlebars of the Nunu and Caldera, is this an issue?
Also would I get a much better bike at the same price point if I skipped the disc brakes.
Finally should I say screw it and spend 1200-1400 US and get a FS???
