Any opinions about the Jekyll 500 with hydraulic brakes upgrade. I can get this for about $1200. Other bikes I am considering are a 2003 Marin rift zone or 2003 east peak with LX upgrades or a 2003 giant vt2. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I will be doing mostly cross country riding in the northest. Other postings recommended the giant vt2 - but how does the cannondale compare for the type of riding I plan on doing. thanks
