Looking more towards the Surface 604 Shred, but others offer good value and was wondering what others opinion are? I prefer to have 10 speeds or less, throttle option, hydraulic brakes, comfortable, reliable and more of a weekend warrior of hard surface with occasional trail riding. The Shred seems to fit the bill in all of my categories. Like that the shred has wider tires. Not sure if I would need or even like the full suspension bike. I'm also considering the Rad Power Mission bike if it comes down to price. Likely get the wife the Rad Power Mission bike. My budget is 2500 or less and I live in Minnesota.
