Hi guys,

I am currently looking to purchase my first serious mountain bike.

I have narrowed it down to the following three:

Trek 3900 d 2012

Specialized Hardrock sport disk 2012

Giant revel 1 2012

I will be riding 70% roads and 30% trails. I wont be tackling any heavy trails with it so it wont be used for drops, jumps etc.

I will probably ride the bike as it is for a year and then start to look at upgrades.
Which of the three would you recommend from a components point of view. I.e which has the best components that will stand up to fast trails/roads.

I am of course in the middle of trying each bike. So far i have only tried the Trek which i found very nice but a little 'too soft'. I am hoping to try the giant and the specialised tomorrow.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
