Bike Choices.........

Have you considered renting? A local bike shop here rents bikes for the weekend for $35 (US) and then deducts the rental fees from the price of a new bike.

That allowed me to try several bikes for more than a parking lot ride. One bike was so responsive that it could almost read my mind but after a few miles it felt like I had gone to a gang fight by myself. Darn near took a week to recover.

Sorry, but I can't really comment on the bikes you mentioned.

Lastly, I think a good frame with average components is better than a poor frame with better components. You can more easily upgrade the components.

Good luch with your search, and keep the rubber side down.
