    GT iDrive 5.0 vs Motobecane 700DS vs Iron Horse Warrior 4.0

    Hey guys, as you can tell I'm looking for a bike at the moment. My budget is $600 as it stands. I've been doing a lot of reading on bikes in my price range and these 3 have been the ones I've kept coming back to. I would like to hear what you all think about these three or if anyone has any suggestions I haven't even thought about.

    Here are links to the specs:

    GT iDrive 5.0

    Iron Horse Warrior 4.0

    Motobecane 700DS

    Thanks for the help everyone.

    Hands down, the I-Drive.

    If you have any issues, there are no bike shops that do warranty work on Motobecanes or Iron Horses. That alone would make the decision for me.

    Definitely not the motobecane. The suspension design is like 10 years old and it'll probably weigh a ton more than the GT. The Iron Horse has similar issues with it. A good shock and a good suspension design makes a huge difference in the way it rides. The GT has a Fox shock, which is one of the nicest ones there is.

    Dude, Jenson USA has the I-D 4 3.0 for 230 more buckaronees. Try and get that one unless you don't like the red colors.
