I think it's going to depend on when you feel best riding. Some people do best with working out before work, others still have energy after. Also, lights or no lights, I don't really enjoy trying to...

Clipless or platform? Assuming clipless because you're giving Euro sizes?

Sidis are legit and last a long time. Mega is their wide line.

I never bothered with one. Cadence is kind of useless mountain biking since it's not really a consistent cadence the way it is road biking...sometimes you're pedaling, sometimes you're pumping etc....

The advantage to buying locally is you can test ride the bike. Plus it's nice to have a relationship with the local shop. All bikes have slightly different geometry, and will fit and ride a little...

All they change is the geometry so it fits someone with longer legs and a shorter torso. If it fits and feels right, it's not like you can only ride it if you have boobs. I'm a woman who rides a...

Well, one is a 29er and the other is a 27.5", so you'll have to decide what size wheels you want. That's the biggest decision here.

Other than that, the Overdrive Sport is better equipped than the...

Trek has a nicer rear derailleur.
Specialized has the worst brakes.

Swap the toe clips for either clipless pedals or pinned platforms, whichever you prefer.

If everything is in good condition, ride it and upgrade things as they break, or as you decide you want...

Have you test ridden them all? They'll all have slightly different geometry, which means that some are more likely to fit you better than others, which will make for a better ride.

Hydration pack is probably the easiest. Try a few on and see which one is comfortable. I have a GoLite Rush that I really like.

Second Colin's advice. They'll all have slightly different geometry, which will make them fit and ride a little bit differently. Most likely, one will fit your body and feel like it rides better than...

Yeah, do NOT sink any money into this bike. Ride it until you either break it or have money for something better, then buy a new bike. Oddly enough, I've ridden with a guy who had a Walmart frame...

Hard to go wrong for $15. I'm sure it's heavy and hi-ten steel, but for the price of a cheap bottle of wine you have a perfectly serviceable ride until you figure out what you want. Plus if you're...

Doubtful you'll find something in that price range with a good fork. You might be able to find an RST or very low-end RockShox, but they'll be not much (if at all) better than the Suntour.

There...
