    GT Avalanche 3 Disc 2008 vs Specialized Hardrock Comp Disc 2008

    Hi guys/gals,

    I can't decide between these bikes.

    GT Avalanch 3 Disc 2008

    -- vs --

    Specialized Hardrock Comp Disc 2008
    http://www.specialized.com/bc/SBCBkModel.jsp?spid=32573

    They both retail at ~ 300. I'm swayed to the GT as I prefer the pait work.

    Which is the better bike?

    You get MUCH MUCH better brakes on the specialized.

    Great, OK. I'm sold on that then.

    I ended up buying a cheap basic Trek 3700 and I'm over the moon with it.
