Out of the two this is the better bike. I'd keep this and I've had both rock Hopper comp and bravado. This is more stumpjumper quality.

Carl.

Indeed, the Bravado was the top of GT's range of steel bikes for most of the 90's. The only frame better would've been the fillet brazed Psyclone which was only available as a frameset.
I have a 97 Bravado whereas this is a 98. Nice ride quality.

This looks to be a very good price especially when you take into account some of the included components.

If I didn't already have something very similar...

I would keep it, sell the fs, use the money to but some better v.brakes like Avid SD 7 and Avid levers (although those XT levers are fine)....new comfy saddle......slightly lower rise stem.....and think about getting a faster acting fork to let the ride of the frame come through more.......or even go rigid !

Is that 20" to the top of the seat tune or to the centre of the top tube?
