I need help. I checked the $500 thread but not quite what i was looking for. I have narrowed my choice to 2 bikes.
Trek 4500 (2004) $420
Specialized Rockhopper (2005) $399
Between the two bikes, and factoring in price which one is a better buy. I am leaning towards the Rockhopper, but i read somewhere the forks changed.
So i humbly ask the MTB forums for help.
