Its bike to work scheme time and im tied to Evans for this. I fancy trying a 29er and will obviously try them out before buying but would anyone be kind enough to explain to me which have the best specs out of the following to give me some guidance?

Kona lava ... e-EV321796

Jamis durango ... e-EV306055

Specialized rockhopper ... e-EV306338

Or is there anything else at this price point i need to consider?

    Of those three the Jamis by a big margin, the fork is so much better than on the other two.

    Also have a look at this Norco ... e-EV334802
    Current steed - Whyte T129, 2013 frame, mongrel Revelations, Giant dropper, Stans S1 wheelset. 12, Magura Trail Sport brakes, 1x11. 12.8Kg

    Thanks for the reply.

    I will see if my local Evans can get 1 in.

    That norco looks cheap, shame I need a medium rather than a small.
