    It has 27 speeds and disc brakes for $450 which is a pretty good deal. If you had the money to step to the $800 bike I think you would see a big difference with lighter and better components including hydraulic brakes. I think REI with their Ponderosa and Bonanza hardtails would be worth checking out as well as Performance Bikes. The price difference is not all that great when you are talking $500-$800 plus you will get fitted instead of guessing.
