There is a local shop selling Diadora bikes, I never heard of them and it took several searches to find the website for the brand. It I the Italian shoe companies expansion into the bike world I am looking for a mountain bike and the bikes look well put together with good components but the confidence in a name I am unsure of has me still walking. My three contenders are the Diadora Prova sport 29, the Raleigh Tokul 2 and the Giant Talon 4. My budget is around $800 t $850. I need a new helmet and a kit for on trail repairs. Any Thoughts?

The Diadora is an 8 spd, 29er. I think the Raleigh might be spec'd better than the Talon. Both of these are 27.5. Go with what feels the most comfortable for you.

Thanks for the insight. Just to confuse things I rode a GT Karakoram 3.0 at another local shop. Deep discount for last years model. Then I rode a Giant Talon 4. LIked the brakes on the talon best of all I have ridden. I am sooo confused.
If I had to pick one right now it would be a toss up between the Giant and the GT. I want to ride the Raliegh again. I hate that they are all on oposite sides of town.
Both of theses places will take my Giant Nutra in on trade so I might get enough for the taxes and a helmet if I don't want a fancy one.
