    GT Marathon 2.0 or a Specialized FSR XC comp

    I'm shopping for a new bike and I'm stuck between bikes. I want to know what you would get and why? A GT or an FSR. The Specialized is going to run me about 1600 but I can get a smoking deal on the GT for 1300 with better components and shocks. What should I do?

    My vote is the GT!
    I have two myself, an 08 Force 2.0 and an 08 Zaskar. Dont have a single complaint about either.

    But if your going to spend 1300 on the marathon I would look into a Force or Sanction, the frames are OH SO SEXY!!!

    Both great bikes - have ridden both - bought a stumpy. Great customer service and Specialized focused training from Specialized shops as well as warranty. Enjoy your new ride whatever you decide.
