Hi, Novice here with silly question.
Could anyone tell me if I would be better of going for a Saracen MTB? spec:

# Frame: Lightweight 7005 Performance Alloy T6 suspension adjusted
# Forks: XCM-LO 100mm with Mini boots and lock out
# Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore Rear Mech
# Front Derailleur: Shimano
# Shifters: Shimano Alivio Rapid fire shifters
# Chainset: Truvativ X-Flow 3.0 42/34/24
# Bottom Bracket: Truvativ Power sealed cartridge
# Chain: KMC Z7
# Freewheel: Shimano HG30 8 speed 11-30T
# Headset: Aheadset w/seals
# Stem: Forged alloy adjustable stem
# Handlebars: Aluminium flat handlebar
# Front Brake: Tektro Auriga Comp hydraulic brakes with 180mm front rotor
# Rear Brake: Tektro Auriga Comp hydraulic brakes with 160mm rear rotor
# Brake Levers: Tektro Auriga Comp hydraulic
# Rims: XC-D alloy double wall
# Front Hub: Formula Alloy with disc fittings
# Rear Hub: Formula Alloy with disc fittings
# Tyres: Tioga Factory XC 26x1.95
# Saddle: Lightweight double stitch saddle with drop nose
# Pedals: BMX style resin platform
# Grips: Kraton grips for comfort

for the same money, as I have ordered an Exodus from Tesco but after reading the very poor reviews ( I haven't a clue about specs but thought Shimano where very good, hence my order ) I've been looking around and can't see many with Hydraulic brakes etc.

Cheers in advance.

http://www.discountcyclesdirect.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=7008{2}113 for the saracen,

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Exodus-Blade-27-speed-Alloy-Carbon-Cycle/dp/B0013N9374/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=sports&qid=1208002739&sr=8-3 for the Exodus Blade ( Tesco got the name wrong )

Lookiing for a road/off road for exercise and once fit a few trials in the country.

Not to expensive either.

Found out that the Blade weighs about 12kg so that looks like good value to me.

''The bike on Tesco's website is incorrectly named. It is an Exodus Blade.
Not a massive difference I know but anyhow.
The bikes weight is 27lbs. The carbon fibre bit of the frame is the rear stays,
The brakes are Deore M535 Hydraulic. The frame is 7005 alloy. The gears are Shimano deore 27 speed with rapid fire shifters.
The bike is imported into the country by the same company that imports the GT/Schwinn range of bikes.
If you want to know where to go look at one I found that out as well, but they won't sell you one cos they are suppliers to the trade only.''

What do you think schizoboy?
