Unfortunately as the riding season is quickly coming to an end around here in Northeast Ohio I still haven't been able to make up my mind on what bike I should get. The one thing I do know for sure is that I do want a full suspension bike. I was able to borrow my buddies Canondale and all I can say is wow what a major difference between that and my hard tail Mongoose! I was able to make it up hills and ride over large roots and rocks that I'm not normally able to.
So far I have been looking at the Specialized Epic Comp 29er and now the Trek Fuel EX-8. They are at the same price point but I'm starting to get a little confused on the differences in components and what I should be looking for. I would be grateful for any and all suggestions you might have for me. Even if you have a suggestion of a different bike I should check out as well.
