    Dilema: Specilized Hardrock Sport or Merida Matts V 40

    Hi guys

    I want to buy a new mountain bike and I can't decide between these two:

    Specialized Hardrock Sport

    Merida Matts 40 V
    http://www.merida-bikes.com/fr_nl/bi...il/MATTS+40-V+

    I understand that both are low-mid range MTB, but I can't afford something better for the moment. Both are in the price range of 350 Euros.

    I consider myself to be an intermediate rider. I pass some 500 km on mountain dirt roads yearly and about as much in the city.

    If somebody can make short comparison between the parts on both, I will be very thankful. Also I would appreciate any sort of advice

    I have also been looking at KTM Ultra One as well, but the price is some 150 Euros higher, and the parts in my viewing are pretty much the same:
