    I'm looking for a new bike. Currently I have a Raleigh F500 and a Trek 4500. I'm looking to step up from the Trek 4500 to a more intermediate level ride and maybe something full suspension.I will not be doing any jumps over 2- 2.5 feet ,and even that will be rare. I was thinking about the Specialized FSR XC Pro disc. What are your opinions on the FSR verses a Trek Fuel 70 or 80.I may also want to get into XC racing soon.Can I do that with the FSR XC ? .Gimme some options.

    Funny thing is that I currently have a Trek 4500 which I have raced for the last 2 seasons. This season I'm looking to upgrade and get a new bike. Problem is that I don't know if I want full suspension or hard tail. I live in South Florida which full suspension really doesn't make me any faster just more comfortable and hard tail makes me faster. My choices are Santa Cruz, Specialized Stumpjumper FSR, or maybe a Fuji Mt. Fuji. I'm doing more research as far as components and price. I'll let you know.
