I need advice

Hello people. It seems like it's impossible to post in the right subforum for this topic, and I can't quiet understand why these restrictions, but OK, admins must have the reason.

So I really don't know much about bycicles, but I want to buy one. The limit I am willing to pay is 400. I live in Split in Croatia and I visited several bike shops to see what's the best bile I can buy for this price.

I noticed 2 bike and I please anyone who knows to advice me. The price is almost the same (little less than 400).

The first one i CENTURION BACKFIRE M6 . They say is't the new model from 2007. I visited www.centurion.de for specifications but i cant't find backfire M6? Anyway it looks like a good bike, it has disks, 24 speeeds, alivio changer...


The second one is WHEELER pro 29:

It doesn't have disks but it looks like a good bike.

***

So one more time I would be very thankfull if someone advise me on this matter, 400 is not little money for a studen like me, which bike is better?

Hvala
