    700HT or Fanton trail?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm considering the 700HT and the Fantom trail. Recreational riding only, 90% on the street probably.
    Is the Fantom worth the extra $100 for a guy riding with his son for an hour or two every weekend or two? I'm not up to date on components, so can't really compare the two bikes.

    Also, my current bike ( a cheap diamondback with old Judy SL (from memory) forks
    is reaallllyyyy uncomfortable. Even after raising the bars with a new stem, my hands start to go numb after about ten minutes riding. Seems like my weight is tipped too far forward I guess.
    Anyway, I am 5'8" so am on the borderline between two frame sizes, in general would a smaller frame tend to put excess weight on the handlebars (my Diamondback frame is small at 17") meaning that I should go for the larger frame in an new bike or is it impossible to generalize?

    Thanks a lot.
    Ken
