    Specialized Pitch Expert 650b or Cannondale Trail 3?

    Hi Everyone,

    I was just curious. I had just bought a Specialized Pitch Expert 650b but I am thinking maybe I should return the bike and go with a Cannondale Trail 3, any thoughts? This is my first mountain bike I've purchased in years and wanted a good platform to start with to get back into it.

    Thanks.

    I would be suggesting these two 27.5+ bikes for comparison. Decent forks with the Beast a little better.
    End of season pricing should be available at some shops. 27.5 hardtails without room for wide tires or Boost 148/110- no way.

    Hey EB,

    Thanks for the advice. I will see if I can go swing either of those. I was trying to stay within my price range for the time being but if I should flip the extra and it would make sense. I appreciate your help.

    Try a diamondback hook or another similar bike. The two your looking at are very similar. The hook will be a more versatile bike so you can learn what types of riding you like most. One will steer better on climbs and one will roll over stuff better. Both will get you around quickly.
