Can't answer your question directly but I checked out the spec for the Bad Boy Deore 2011 - a model in your price bracket.

Now if there is one thing that makes me want to spit feathers it is where a maker fits a couple of bits of Shimano Deore on a bike and then uses the Deore label to describe the bike. This bike has an FSA chainset, tektro brakes, a formula rear hub. It is not a Deore level bike! So this bike is pretending to be something it isn't. That does not make it a bad or poor value bike but it does make you question the motives behind the makers.

Remember the least important thing on a bike in terms of its performance is the name on the side.
