finally finish reading all the posts...more tiring than riding bike.....but definitely had learnt quite alot......

btw, i observed most of the popular brands are gt, giant, jamis etc...but seems like no one is riding on a cannondale....possible reasons??the brand is in my thoughts too but of cos other brands i feel are decent enough too for their specs n price for their individual model. higher end bikes >1k, still thinking wanna hoot or not e.g. giant anthem 3, S or even XTC SE...

i know frame is the top priority when choosing a bike, so how can i compare the frame and other components when buying a new stock bike?

or i shld just go out n hoot 1 bike, go cycling straightaway and just enjoy!

When you are new to cycling as a hobby, this makes the most sense actually.

Do you know why GT bike is so popular in MTB community?

From my point of view,

I guess the GT bike is consider entry level bike.You compare the part & the frame.

I guess alot of people have the mentality that polygon bike made in indo,frame looks cheap,not popular....

Even myself,when i went to LBS to look at the GT bike.I am so ***** in love with it.


Cannondale the price range around $800.I guess people rather buy GT & upgrade to better part.


*Note why i compare GT & Polygon.Cause the price is just $150 difference.

i saw the cannondale f series models, their specs is like all using dedicated cannondale parts........is that why their componenets are harder to upgrade/replace in future?

in fact, i oso had my eyes on gt ava 3.0 disc , but still looking at other options e.g. jamis, which seems not bad too
