So I've picked up that it's a good idea to start out with a hardtail. Which is fine, it all makes sense in order to build form and technique. But my question is about which bike to get? I've looked into Giant Rainier and Specialized Rockhopper Comp Disc, which is better? The Specialized sounds like a better bike and company. Giant seems to be more of a soccer mom/generic bike (not trying to insult anyones choice in company, and I'm sure their top of the line bikes are really nice.) Am I right to be leaning towards the rockhopper? Are their any others I should look at before buying a bike? Should I buy one used? (I'm planning on getting a new one.) Any thoughts or help would be sweet! Thanks
What about the Kona Kikapu?
