Hi,

I'm in the market for a new or lightly used Altitude. They seem like awesome all-around bikes. I can get a C50 or A70 for pretty much the same price. I'm really unsure which is a better option. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Mainly riding blues and blacks on Fromme.

The 2020 C70 is my perfect bike, but pricey. I don’t think the A70 is offered in a 2020 model. Looking at 2019 A70 vs C50, the A70 has better shocks, better brakes, and a 10-50 cassette vs 11-50. With a 34t chainring, the 10t is almost like having an extra high speed gear. With equal components, I would pick a carbon frame and maybe pay an extra $500. Otherwise, A70 would be my pick.
