F5,HardRock or RockHopper
I am getting my chunky monkey butt back into riding and I need a good starter bike. I am 6'1 and 310#. I went to the LBS and looked at the Hardrock sport disc and the rockhopper disc. The shop guy said he would nock the Rockhopper down to $600 to be competitive with a Cannondale F5 I saw at another shop. All bikes are stock. Which one would be the best for me to ride basic trails on? I like all three but I want something that will last and grow with me when I get a little braver on the trails.
