This is one of the bikes I'm thinking about purchasing. Anyone with any experience? This will be my first Mountain Bike.

Thanks.

Seems nice, but a little salty on the price considering the component gruppo. It's nearly identical to the 4300 disc...only less obnoxious with the sticker job.

Are there any other bikes you are considering? Maybe we could do a comparison of your top three.

I think the 4300 was one of the ones they had at my LBS as well. I have to do some more research this Friday. So I don't really have other models yet. But thanks. That's a great point.

Now as I was doing some research, I ran across the Giant Boulder. I remember trying it out for a test ride a few years ago before buying my road bike. It's quite a bit cheaper than the Wahoo but not sure if cheaper is necessarily better.

The Giant Boulder is a low-end, recreational bike not designed for real off-roading such as the Wahoo or even the 4300. Why not look at other brands? There are other bikes that are better deals.

Could you please suggest a few? That would be most helpful. Thanks.
