    That's cool, don't mean to bash on the Denali, but- for the upper end of OP's $400 price range I'll pick the Motobecane. The Denali's weird twist shifters alone are a deal breaker for me.

    Giant makes good bikes. Ride it and get a feel for it. The price isn't unreasonable if it fits you!

    Avoid the Denali. Are you willing to partially assemble a bike? Look into Bikes Direct. The Motobecane Mirage is a nice ride that comes in under the $400 mark.

    This is very true! Armadillo's are not for the faint of heart. They roll like a solid tire, will chatter your teeth in the rough, and require high pressures at all times.

    However, when puncture...

    OP, since you are lucky enough to buy from a Specialized dealer, you might want to try on a pair of Armadillo tires. These things are bulletproof, and make cycling a worryproof activity.
