Wondering if anybody out there could give me some advise on which bike to get, ive narrowed it down to these 3...

Please help!

Scott Scale 30
Cannondale taurine 3
Giant XTC C3



  • I've got the 07 taurine 3 which i've had about a month now and it's fantastic, v light and v comfortable to ride + good equipment,the 08 has fox forks which i reckon might be better for longer travel heavier off road ,but so far i love the way the headshok feels, very direct almost like a rigid fork. so far i'm :D very happy ! plus it's nice to have something different to the usual stuff .

    I've had the XTC C3 (2007) since August last year and i like it a lot. I'm not familiar with the other two bikes but the C3 is very XC race oriented. I've just switched the bars to risers to give me a more upright position on the trails. Its a light, quick bike and i'd recommend giving it a test ride.

    How much have you seen it advertised for and which year are you looking at? I do remember looking at the Focus bikes on Wiggle and thinking they had a better specced carbon hardtail than the C3 for similar money, but I haven't seen the frame...
