    Cool-blue Rhythm Which ones????

    Hi all,

    need to get on bikes - the whole family!!

    After I got rid of the "69.99 Special" - I am looking into serious bikes to start.

    However, this is quite a steep learning task - bikes came a looooooooooong way, ....I'm finding out!

    Here is what I narrowed it down to:

    Cannondale F4
    Giant XTC2
    GT Avalanche 1.0 Disc
    Rocky Mountain Trailhead XC ('09)
    Trek 6500 or 6000

    (if I can get a Ladies specific version, I will get that one for my wife....)

    I am looking to buy 2 (same type, different size of one of the above models) for me and my wife and little later another one for my son.

    As an option I consider a Diamondback Sortie 1 ('08) for my boy (on sale for 1/2 price)

    I would like to hear your experiences with any of these bikes and if you have recommendations - better so!!

    Thanx all!

    All pretty nice bikes. Try to ride each one and see which one you like. Also try a Scott Scale 70 if you have a dealer near you. It's in that price range. As for your wife, she might like the way a different bike feels so don't assume you are getting a smaller version of your bike for her. You might be able to get a deal if you're buying 2 (maybe 3) bikes at one time.
