    Salsa vs Specalized

    Hey guys,

    as my dreams of getting a Stache 8 blew up in flames this week. I hit the local shop to take a look at whats in stock. Almost every dealership in town is sold out of anything in my size and not abel to order anything until fall. UGH. I did see a couple close out clearance bikes in stock and thought I would see what your thoughts are. i'm 6 foot living in Montana weighting in at 275lbs. I've been known to break freehubs.

    I found the following

    2016 Salsa Horsethrive for $2200 Alum. Fram
    2017 Specialized Stumpy for $2200 Alum fram

    and stumbled across a new bike for my g/f
    2016 Specalized Rumor comp 27.5 for $1850

    Thoughts?

    Describe your riding style and preferred terrain. What bikes have you ridden that you like, that perform/handle the way you are hoping. All of the bikes you’ve listed are of good quality, but have different handling characteristics and suspension performance. One is only better than another based on how you plan to use it, and how you hope for it to perform.
