    Personally, I would drop $600 on a used Hoss (like this one in the classifieds) before the ones you mentioned. Not that they are bad bikes, just slightly less suited to the abuse of a clyde. JMO.

    They're all probably about the same strength. If the 2005 Trek has the same components as the 2006 version, I'd go with that one. Second choice would be the Cinder Cone, third choice the Blast. This is assuming that they all fit OK. I'm basing my opinion on components only, I haven't tried any of the bikes and couldn't guess which has the stronger frame.

    Why do you have to buy one this weekend, and why are you limited to only these three models? In Montreal there has got to be many bike stores with many options to choose from.

    Good luck.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot that you're in Canada. (Different type of dollar ). My personal suggestions still stand.

    475 for a Cinder Cone is a good deal.
