I'm looking to purchase a good entry/intermediate level mountain bike. I have a budget of about $800 - $900. Definitely want it to be a hard tail, also good for single track, and mildly rocky terrain. I'm not planning on racing or anything, just good long weekend mountain biking. Here are the bikes I have been looking at so far:
Scott Aspect 20
Specialized Rockhopper comp disc
Orbea Sherpa disc
Anyone had any experience with these, or reccomend one over the other? I'm 5'7 and about 145 pounds (if that makes any difference). Thanks in advance for all your help and advice!
