    New question here. 3 (Hard!!!)Tail Choices...

    1)2010 Specialized HardRock Disc 383 out the door.

    2)2011 Felt Q520 460 out the door.

    3)2010 GT Avalanche 2.0 Disc 440 out the door.

    Ive ridden all of them, I like the way the Felt looks. I just dont know which is the BETTER DEAL, and a BETTER BIKE (components and such.)

    PLEASE HELP ME CHOOSE...

    There's not a lot in it, component wise. -1 point from the Specialized for speccing an 80mm fork - the others have a more trailworthy 100mm fork, very similar otherwise. Felt - a STEEL handlebar according to their specs - which is unusual considering the others have alloy, steel bars are really department store level. But it will still do the job.

    Kudos to Felt for speccing a larger 180mm brake rotor up front - more braking power.

    IMO I'd favour the Felt and the GT over the Spec - pick which one you like best out of those two. The frames are similar in quality by the looks. I agree that the Felt does look pretty sharp.
    Less isn't MOAR

    I have a GT Avalanche 3.0 and love it.

    The frame is insanely strong and just feels right. The geometry is setup for very responsive handling, which I like. Its like fly-by-wire.

    I tried comparable Treks, Fishers, and Specialized and nothing came close to how the GT felt.
