    Fezzari Abajo Peak vs. Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er

    Hello everyone

    I'm brand new to mountain biking and was hoping to receive some suggestions from knowledgeable riders. So my main objective is to get the best bike for around 700. I've been searching around the Internets and came across two bikes in which seem like ideal bikes for my situation.

    First bike I found is a Fezzari Abajo Peak, asking price is 700, retail 1250.
    Fezzari full suspension cross country MTB

    The second bike is a Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29 asking price $800, retail $1150. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=291035401853

    If I go strictly based on retail I would obviously choose the Fezzari, but the bike would require more effort to go pick up. On the other hand the Specialized is a 29er, is easier to pick up. As of right now I'm leaning towards the Fezzari because retail is greater, I can get it for a better price and I personally believe it's more aesthetically pleasing.

    So I was hoping the all knowing people which roam this forum can take a look at the two and give me some suggestions. I will greatly appreciate the help!

    I just thought I would let you know that the Rockhopper is a 2013 base model.

    retail 880.

    The Fezzari is better top to bottom. Though I would replace the rear shock with something better from Rock Shox or Fox.
