I am new and am looking to get a new bike! I live in Mexico where I will be using my bike to commute. Most of the area I will ride has rocky, dirt roads and some paved streets. I have 3 stores near me with options of Cube, Specialized, and Giant bikes. As well one of them that might be able to get Cannondale (still waiting on a response).

All of the bikes are 2018's . I have ridden the Talon 2 and the Rockhopper Expert and like both equally after riding. I have not ridden the cube yet but will be trying shortly.


Cube: $770 US
Talon 2 : $799 US
Rockhopper Expert: $851 US

If you could tell me which one has the best value in your opinion as well for the Talon and Rockhopper I might be able to get an additional 10 percent off. If I understood the guy correctly He said that the new Specialized bikes are coming out and the new ones will go on sales on April 19th. Also if you can think of any competing Cannondale in this price range let me know!

Thanks and God bless!
