    Newbie need recommendations.. Miele

    Hi guys,

    I'm not so new to biking but pretty much a newbie when it comes to brands, parts quality etc.. Actually it's been a while since the last time I biked. This summer I'd like to get back into the sport. I'll do mostly paved/gravel paths with the g/f, mountain touring, and very occasionnal XC. Nothing extreme, really. Looking at hard tails mostly.

    Note that I'm in Canada. I'm currently looking at this one at my LBS:

    Miele Pulse SX

    It has an Al frame and brand name components for the most part. Is it any good? They're clearing the inventory so its currently priced at 380$ CDN +tx.

    One other LBS recommended the Trek 820 for the same price. That one got a steel frame though.

    Also, reading on the forum I've learned about Forge, and looked into the Saranac CM and the 5xx which sells for US$ 235 and 380 respectively at Target nowadays. Importing a bike into Canada is doable, but still kind of an hassle. Although I have access to a US addess for the shipping, I'm not sure Target would accept payment on a Canadian credit card...
    Side quesiton, are Forge bikes available at LBS' at all in Canada ? There is no dealer search or else on Forge's website.

    Thanks in advance

    Edit: The Forge Edgmont might be a good choice too?
    Edit 2 : Another LBS has the 2008 Specialized Hardrock Sport on sale for 425$ (CDN as always).
