    started cycling to work with a friend's bike which is full suspension cheap esperia bike.. didnt like it much. now looking for a hard tail. my route involves a lot of uphills and downhills (when going back) with plenty of potholes. bike shops always suggested mountain bikes.

    i've seen the Bianchi Kuma 4600

    and the Corratec X-Vert Halcon

    both are in my price range with 50 euro difference (corratec being the more expensive)

    anyway considering that components can be upgraded over time which would be the better bike frame? Although corratec seems to have better components lighter frame and continental tires. can anyone help me decide? thankyou
