    what bike make do you prefer?

    thought i'd post a poll here just to see which of the 4 mountain bike makers people like the best...

    select the one you think has the best packaged bike from stock... considering also the frame quality, weld seams, components used etc...

    the only reason i didn't list others is due to the availability of them in my area...

    I have ridden all of them. I have very little experience with trek and giant. I have loved every specialized i have ridden, the cannondale i rode was wierd, it had a lefty, and i felt like the turning was off a bit.
    From specialized i have ridden:
    P.2
    P.3
    Hardrock
    a couple fsrs
    s-works enduro
    Only one of them did i not like, it was too laid back for me at the time.
    hi

    I don't really think I have a preference...
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    I currently have a Cannondale Scaple with the "lefty," it's a good bike. I also have a Trek 4300, for the price it's a good entry level bike.

    However I prefer Specialized bikes, I will be picking up an Epic Comp this fall/winter

    what bikes are you looking for from each?

    Can you see what I'm getting at?

    Just to let everyone know why everyone keeps saying "blue". . . Must underground bikers know blue is faster. . . and chicks dig blue. Did I mention the chicks?

    I am going to vote Trek since I got into the sport on an all cro-moly Trek 830, loved it, and then have a Pretty sweet Trek 8000 now. However, the bikes in between, my unbelievable awesome and beautiful 24 lb. stock Schwinn Homegrown Killer Tomato was, and still is, my first true love. The Klein I had in there somewhere was pretty amazing, but nothing to keep forever.

    My official answer is a simple, I don't have one. I don't believe in preferred vendors.

    A Trek by any other name is still a Trek.

    I like the Trek Session 10 better than the Giant Glory. I like the Giant Reign X better than the Cannondale Perp, I like the Cannondale Prophet better than the Specialized Enduro SL, I like the Specialized SX Trail II better than the Trek Session 77...

    Every company makes a Viper and a Neon...

    Way too broad, sir.

    Specialized
