    Raleigh Talus 29 Sport Vs. Cannondale Trail 5 29er

    Which is better? Seems that the Talus has better parts for the money and 9 speed cassette vs 8 on the cannondale. Cannondale has XCM fork where the Talus has a XCR
    Thoughts?

    Bike direct has a similar quality bike for $419 delivered. Generally, when you ride more difficult trails the 'X' forks are a component to upgrade. A Raidon air fork is being offered By Nick at Suntour for 189+12 ship for trail riding.
    The Gravity Point 1 has geo similar to a Trek Mamba . It has Alivio/Deore drive in 9 speed.

    thanks...thats great , but id like to be able to actually see the bike in person first. Also, all the cannondales and raleighs at the lbs are 15 percent off this weekend to get ready for new inventory, so I can get a bit off at the moment.

    I have had a cannondale since I started riding and I just love the feel and the way it handles. SO I'm bias towards a cannondale

    Went with the Raleigh instead. I test road both around and it just felt much better.

    Update. Loving the bike. I am getting more acquainted with it. No complaints so far. Only thing I wanna upgrade is the coil fork. I am prob a little too heavy for it
