    Essentially the same bike, Halfords version has a tora fork, GT a Suntour. Agressor has Juicy 3 brakes, Avalanche Tektro Comps. Depends on what others on here think of the pro's and con's of these components as I'm only getting back into mtb but I'd have thought you'd struggle to notice the difference.

    The Avalanche is going to be the lighter bike - the frame is lighter i believe as the Aggressor uses the 07 Avalanche frame, and the Tora forks are meant to be a fair bit heavier than the Suntours. The Shimano brakes on the Aggressor are very similar to the Tektros on the Avalanche. The Avalanche gets a better chainset than the Aggressor too. Although the Tora is meant to perform better I have heard people say that they actually think the SUntour does having tried both. Wheels are slightly different, unfortunately can't tell which is best due to the crappy partial spec list on the Halfords site.
