    Buying advice b/w Cannondale Quick CX3 vs Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disk vs Disk

    Please help me decide b/w the following. I was first going for the cheaper $579 Crosstrail disk, but the LBS person suggested looking at the ones with the suspension lock out. I'm trying to keep my budget reasonable. I'll be more of a Sunday rider with my son who I bought the Specialized Hotrock 24 21-speed bike

    I'm trying to find the best bang for buck b/w the following 3... the LBS rep suggested looking at hydraulic disks too but I think staying with regular disk brakes may be plenty for me. I'm trying to figure out at this price point, is there a major difference b/w cannondale vs specialized specs/quality and what I'll be getting for my $

    Cannondale Quick CX3 $799

    Cx4 is a non-suspension fork and may be just the ticket. Also a bit lower priced than the 3.
