    Another what bike to buy scenario

    Itís the time of year when I can get great deals on a demo bike from last year. Iím here to ask your advice. The bikes are all about the same price except for my third option.
    Option 1: Trek Fuel ex 8
    Option 2: Norco Sight C3
    Option 3: Spend 500 more, and get a new Stumpy Comp Al

    Thanks for your input,
    -Jeff

    I don't think the aluminum Stumpjumper is a good deal. You're paying a premium for a brand new model in one of the lowest configuration for both frame and parts.

    The Trek is a very well refined alloy frame and decent bike but the fork is just a low-end Fox Rhythm 34 Float.

    The Norco of course has the best frame of the three being carbon (along with the best resale potential), but the brakes are quite terrible and I don't know much about that DVO fork.
