I want to spend £450 - 750 on a women's mountain bike to use it for fun trail riding. I think I have narrowed it down to 3:

- Cannondale trail sl3
- Giant talon 2w
- Scott contessa 30

However one bike shop i went to didn't have a good word to say about the cannondale (snap and fail i think they used to be known as) and as the 2010 models are quite new I can't find many reviews on any of the models.

Any advice on which one to go for?
