    2010 Mission 1 for $1300 from Giantnerd??

    So I've been debating between the 2011 Tanuki Deluxe vs. the 2011 Altitude 10 & browsing around some more today I see this deal from Giantnerd on the DB for pretty much the same price. Would a 2010 Mission 1 be a better choice than the other 2 bikes I've been thinking about getting? What do yall think?

    So now it's 2010 Mission 1
    2010 Diamondback Mission 1 Mountain Bike - Giantnerd®

    vs.

    2011 Altitude 10
    Rocky Mountain Altitude 10 Mtn.Bike - Sport Chalet

    &

    2011 Tanuki Deluxe
    Kona Tanuki Deluxe Bike from Hucknroll.com

    The Diamondback has the best component spec.

    Yes it does! Tapered HT is cool too! Have you considered buying used?

    The Kona & DB have tapered head tubes... Yeah I've been looking at the local CL & have checked a few out... Is that Mission frame still the same as the latest model? Also, I'm 5' 6". You think the small 15.5" should be my size?

    I think the last time the Mission was changed was for the 2010 model year, so it should be the same as the 2012's. Im not sure about the sizing. If that what you think you will get, post something in the diamondback forum. The people there will know more then me.

    I don't know if it is just me, but I have never thought a taped HT has been all that special. With that beening said all of the above bikes have QR's and IMHO QR's are dead. And will be a costly upgrade when you figure out it is negating from stiffness of the tapered HT. A Mission 2 would be my minimum choice. But you are a little guy so it may not be a issue for you.

    That DB looks like the best deal.

    Mission is a good buy. Picked up my 10' mission 2 for 1400. Love the bike. 10 and up have the new style frame. 2012 they're going to 12x142mm dropouts. Other than that they're identical I think. Get the bike, you'll love it!

    I have had two Missions and they're pretty bad a$$. I had an 08 Mission which I sold and missed it so much I bought a 2010. The 2010 is the newest (stronger) frame design, although, if I remember correctly the 2012 is 1 degree slacker yet in the HA. Like I said, mine is also a 2010 and I couldn't imagine a better all round bike! Buy the Mission and change out parts as they break. The frame is awesome. Just my 2 cents!
