Don't know XC stuff - Need opinions on 2 bikes
A buddy of mine is looking at a budget F/S bike, and has found 2 that he wants to buy. He asked me for my opinion, but I'm into the FR/DH scene and don't know all that much about these 2:
GT I-Drive 2.0
Which would you recommend to him?
I would lean towards the GT...
but he should try them out himself. I hear that particular KHS bike is kind of a pig.

Your buddy might also look at a used Specialized FSR. They are in the 700-900 range on ebay. I been beating on mine for almost two years and have just had to replace the chain, tubes and tires. (considering I'm about 185-190 lbs and not exactly a "finess" rider they are pretty durable for the money)

Out of the two you mentioned, the GT.
