Hello everyone and good day to all. Yesterday i took back my Gt avalanche 3.0 2012 that i had purchase since it just didn't meet my expectations. So i got a Access Raptor 2.0 from PerformanceBike, it has better components than a gt avalanche 3.0 (hydraulic lockout,better shifters,better tires since maxxis mobsters are discontinued now) i could take the bike back again and with 120 bucks just get the raptor 1.0 It has hydraulic disc brakes and a roxshocks suspension. Would it be worth the money? Im a noobie to mountain biking so i wana hear opinions from those who are more into the sport.

stop taking advantage of the system. if you dont have the money for something, instead of wasting the shops time (money) just save money instead of scheming.
" i could take the bike back again and with 120 bucks just get the raptor 1.0"
do you do the same thing at restaurants?

I agree with Abstractform20:
Yes, the Raptor 1 would be a better bike, but you should do your research first, then make your final purchase. Once you've taken delivery of your new bike and you legitimately discover something wrong with the product (like a cracked frame or something), then that's the time to make a new product change. You don't just frivolously change your selection, as if by whim.
That would just grate my nerves, if I were your salesman!
That just appears to be very immature behavior to me.
If you end up doing that again, please at least make sure you've researched and gotten the bike you want to keep. I think even doing that twice would be a bit over the top.
I'd suggest getting out there and riding and don't worry about what bikes you maybe could have had. There are always gonna be bikes that cost a little more than you spent that are a little better. Just get out there on a bike and have fun. That's the important part. Not worrying about what could have been.

echoing the statements made previously...
Obviously a noob in all respects. Pretty bad form to return a bike twice just because you didn't like the components and wanted to "upgrade". Research, test ride and buy once. Ride a season or two. Sell old bike, then get a new bike.
You don't do the same with a new car or big screen TV do you? Same applies to a bike...

OP how old are you?

Thirteen years old in business etiquette years. Sell the bike on craigslist, buy a Hardrock, & donate the rest to the bike shop you took advantage of.

Yeah you guys are all right. I was kinda embarrased when i took the GT back but I also forgot to mention that the wheel rims and the disc rotors were bent and all they did were adjust it a bit but didn't really do anything. Even tho the manager told me that if i wanted another size then to just call him but I guess that's taking way over the advantage,
