    New question here. New Specialized Hardrock or 2010 Breezer Lightning Pro

    Looking to buy a mtb, plan to ride trails and some light commuting in an urban environment. Been looking around at some bikes at a price point I think I may be able to convince my wife into approving, around $700.

    I was looking at some specialized bikes and I see people saying the hardrock is a good entry level bike, and their website says MSRP is $700. Alternatively, I have found someone trying to sell a 2010 breezer lightning pro for $800. I have done some research and this seems like an alright deal, and a badass bike.

    Opinions on if that is a good price, or which one would make the most sense to buy as more of an entry level rider. FWIW, the breezer is a 26", and the hardrock would be a 29.

    thanks very much,

    The Hardrock is definitely a good entry-level bike, and would be a fine commuter. That being said, go for the Breezer as long as it's in good shape. It's a much better bike overall, and if you get into mountain biking it will be easier to upgrade into a high-end machine.

    Also, the Hardrock has an aluminum frame and the Breezer is steel, so you should think about the differences in ride and which you might prefer. I'm personally a fan of steel frames.
