Hey everyone, I've outgrown my old bike and need a new one. Seeing as I'm only 15, my spending limit is about $800. I've been doing alot of research and have narrowed it down to two bike.
Trek 6000 (Black/Onyx)
Specialized Rockhopper Comp Disc (Satin Charcoal)
I found the Trek at a LBS for $699 (180 off MSRP), and the Rockhopper for $725.
Forks are the same, brakes on Trek are better, I think the Trek has all around slightly better components but I've test ridden both and they seem pretty even. I won't be racing or anything but I will be riding pretty hard on singletracks (I'm 6' 200 lbs.) and getting 3-4 feet of air on occasion. I'm pretty decided on the Trek, but I was wondering what you guys thought.
