    $1200 Hardtail?

    Howdy. I am looking to upgrade to a better hardtail. I currently have a 2004 Rockhopper. My limit is $1200. I checked out a Specialized Stumpjumper with V brakes for $1127 today, but they did not have it in my size. They want 10% down before they will order one for me. Before I do that what other hardtails in this price range should I look at? Seems like the bike shops here only carry $400 hardtails and $2000 FS bikes. Nothing in between.

    I would like the new bike to be 25 pounds or under with good components. V brakes are OK as long as the frame allows me to upgrade at some point.

    The Jamis Dakota XC is 25.5 lbs. (as claimed on website) and has a steel frame that will ease up the bumps.

    Jamis' Komodo isn't bad either, but it's nowhere near your weight req. at 31lbs.

    Bianchi OETZI 9600XL ALU/CARBON

    Retails for $1350 ( I know it's over your $1200 ceiling, but thought you may want to check it out.)
