First off, how do you do a poll? Anyway... For my budget I've narrowed it down to 3 bikes:
1- Giant Trance X4; $1,425
2- Specialized FSR XC Comp; $1,550
3- Specialized Pitch Comp; $1,650
Looked around online and these seem to fit the use/budget. Ticks me off they don't advertise weight of the bikes. Opinions on these? I'm getting really tired of pushing a 33# bike out there... (Giant Rincon) I think I'm about ready to just pull the trigger on a bike.
