mongoose ritual dirt hi
http://www.mongoose.com/usa/eng/mtn.../Jumping/Details/2752-M9RITDH-Ritual-(Dirt-Hi)

i like both bikes but i can get the mongoose wholesale price which is aroud $1200 but i really like the frame on the giant but the giant is atleast $2000, the components on the mongoose are better but im not completly sure if the geometry on the frame is good. so i need some help from some people to tell me if the giant is worth the money

oh and if some bargain comes up for the giant should i buy it then get better parts to put on it?

Thanx:)

HA is the same, but for me the fact that the Mongoose is CroMo settles it. CroMo steel is the best and usually the strongest frame material.

The drop outs on the Mongoose actually look stronger also.

If you can get the Mongoose for wholesale and it has better components then it is surely a no brainer!
