Thanks for the help guys, its hard to get unbiased, good advice on these types of things. All the guy said (the Trek guy) was that the X Caliber 5 had more durable, better quality 'components' compared to the others. Does it matter if I'll be doing modest Mountain biking; no crazy jumping etc! I am a beginner MTB and want to be safe
Why is the Hardrock so much cheaper? Is the Trek worth the extra $$?

For someone who isn't doing really technical trails (eg: jumps off rocks) are the better components worth the extra money. I am on a limited budget, but I want a good bike that I can enjoy for a while
I doubt the specialized components are that bad, are they?
Dannihilator when your say that the Trek has the better components, are you talking about the X Caliber 4 as well as the 5? How does the 4 compare with the Hardrock?
Thank you for the feedback by the way!!!
