Hoo Koo E Koo, 6700 or 6500?
After researching bikes in my budget(~$1K) and requirements(hardtail, hyd disc), I've decided on the Fisher HKEK. My LBS says they can order it, but can't predict a delivery date better than June/July time frame. They also said that prices could be up 15-20% by then. I see the 6700 is similar in specs and price, but I don't know the availability. The LBS does have a 6500 in stock and my size.
Should I order a HKEK, 6700 or settle for the 6500 in stock?
FYI, I currently ride an early 90s Hard Rock with a couple thousand commuter miles on it, so anything new I ride feels awesome. I mainly ride road and commute, so I'm looking for a MTB that will last a long time and comes stock with decent components.
