    Which bike?

    (sorry about the repost, posted in wrong spot, damn this early morning and no coffee! )




    Hey guys,

    A few days ago, I asked a question about bikes. I got a lot of great answer's from here and went searching for the bike that "sang to me".

    Well I found two bikes that really seem decent to me, they have decent mid range components. One is a hard tail, and one is a FS bike.


    The hardtail is a Marin Nailtrail with disk brakes for $550 from my LSB

    The FS is a Haro Extreme X2 for $649.

    These are 2003 model bikes that they are giving me a deal on. The Haro was listed at 1100 and the Marin was listed at 750.


    My personal thinking is the Marin has a bit better components on it, but a decent FS bike would always be welcome.

    What are your guys opinions? I have mine I think, just looking for what other people think as well.

    Your original post said you were into dirtbiking

    So, I would guess you are used to a full suspension ride on trails. Go with the Haro unless you find the ride of the hardtail significantly more to your liking.

    I've ridden a FS a few times, not a ton, this would be my first "fs" bike that I own.
