Which one would you get?

These are all my size.. all in good condition and i can get any of them for the same $250 price.

I dont want to spend too much because i barley started ridding my road bike to work 6mo ago and i want to try and ride some trails here. I might not get into it, so not spending alot is a big deal. Ill probably use it twice a month.

What would you recommend and why?

2007 Haro Escape 8.2 MTB
Disc brakes

2006 Scott 40 Reflex
Disc brakes, slime tubes.

1994 Specialized S Works Prestige Cr-Mo Double Butted

Full suspension
Shimano Deore LX
Controltech handle bars
Manitou 4 Fork


Thanks!

I don't know much about all the bikes, but I'd shy away from the 94 Specialized. It may be full suspension but the components are hella old and the fork and shock may not be up to task. Pick between the two newer bikes instead and ride happy.

Hmmm, 1994 bike vs. the other two. Not saying anything other than alot of things have happened in the component world since 1994! The Haro would be my pick. My LBS carries Haro's and they are great bikes. They carry Scott too, and they are greta bikes. Hey, don't mind me! Just compare the componetry of both then make a educated decision.

Good luck!
