    We the people ...

    I've got both a 03 ARC & 03 HCR. mail me if you want specific questions answered!
    in essence, the ARCs more stable @ higher speed, stiffer drivetrain feel but not as harsh as you'd expect. chainring clearance is very good. very well made. kinda fragile for rocky use (minor dent in downtube)

    HCR, lighter feeling front end than ARC,more nimble lower speeds tho not as stable, tyre clearance is surprisingly tight. very well made. dropouts are a tad more fiddly with some QRs. had some massive rock impacts & no dents as yet.
    Kinda obvious, I'd say the ARCs more for racing, or less abuse. the HCR is more trail, comfy longer rides

    hope that helps
