    Sight to compare bikes?

    Is there a sight to line up bikes and compare them?

    If not we should develop one, we'd be rich.
    People ask me all the time "who beat you up"? I tell them "a tree". They just look at me funny....

    To some degree BikeRadar may fulfill your requirements of a comparison site.

    A sight would be something you use on a gun, so unless you're trying to compare their resistance to a bullet then I would suspect you want a site, as in website.

    And isn't that the point of Mountain Bike Review .com?
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    Thats really just a cover for discussing cooking and interior design.

    And pedantic conversations about the use of homonyms I guess.

    like a scope or something - did you want to line all the bikes up along side eachother and survey them?
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    I like Competitive cyclist or Wrench Science for info on a bike aside from MTBR. BikeBling has something similar to what you are looking for but then again it limits to what a company is carring.

    What are you looking for, you may need to narrow the choices down first before doing some serious comparison. Once you are used to the components line up it should be easy.

    Another good option is to get a used bike.

    similar dilemma in comparing these bikes

    Buying advice b/w Cannondale Quick CX3 vs Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disk vs Disk

    Please help me decide b/w the following. I was first going for the cheaper $579 Crosstrail disk, but the LBS person suggested looking at the ones with the suspension lock out. I'm trying to keep my budget reasonable. I'll be more of a Sunday rider with my son who I bought the Specialized Hotrock 24 21-speed bike

    I'm trying to find the best bang for buck b/w the following 3... the LBS rep suggested looking at hydraulic disks too but I think staying with regular disk brakes may be plenty for me. I'm trying to figure out at this price point, is there a major difference b/w cannondale vs specialized specs/quality and what I'll be getting for my $

    Cannondale Quick CX3 $799

    Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disk $749

    Specialized Crosstrail Disk $579

    Thanks in advance

    I like bikepedia.com. They recently added a side-by-side comparison feature. It can be a little clunky, but I don't know another site that collects specs the way it does.

    Fwiw, I ride alot of trails, and I use mechanical discs. Ive ridden both and if youre on a budget, the switch from hydro to mechanical wont be a big hinderance. Plus, upgrading the mechanicals to hydraulics down the road can be done for fairly cheap.
