I will be on street, going off curbs daily on the way to the gym and going up in the hills.
How will the bikes below do?

2006 Iron Horse Warrior Trail DS

K2 Attack 2.0 2006

Iron Horse Sinister Race DS 2005
http://www.rscycle.com/s.nl/it.A/id.7321/.f?sc=7&category=55

I am ridding a 2003 Target Schwin full suspension that is dying. The bottom bracket exploded and is now loose bearings in greese, the crank is bent and makes a lot of noise while pedaling. I have been ridding it since 2003 which shows my experience in quality products.

Thanks in advance

give us some more details on what type of riding you'll be doing 'in the hills'
all three are bottom of the barrel half decent bikes, but would do fine for most begining riding...

though if most of your riding is the 'going off curbs on the way to the gym' type, you totally don't need FS.
(and can get a much nicer HT for what you'd spend on one of these ghettoish FSes.)

Primarily road ridding on paved trails and then going into some of the many east bay hills around here.

Ive been on these trails and some in Monterey on my crap target bike and I imagine the Iron Horse Trail DS is 10 times better. I imagine I wont notice a difference from these bikes and one for a couple $100 more for the ridding I am doing.

I can always change the components down the road if my ridding gets more serious right?

thanks

If you plan on upgrading the things that dont work then you should look at which frame best suits your riding. You may want to check the other forums for info on
Ironhorse and K2 to see what the riding characteristics of each of these bikes is and what other people are upgrading.
