I've got it narrowed down to two bikes, and I'd just like to see some of your input before I make my final decision. The first is a year old Specialized Sequoia for $650 ( http://www.specialized.com/bc/SBCBkModel.jsp?arc=2008&spid=34076 ), and the second is a new KHS Flite 300 for $770 ( http://www.khsbicycles.com/05_flite_300_09.htm ). They look fairly similar to me, but I'm very new to this so I don't know much about either brands reputation for reliability and all that. Of course, a lot of what I base my decision on will come from when I finally go in and take each one around the block. Other than that...what do you guys think?
