First and foremost, just want to say hi. I live near Toronto. Excited to pick up my first REAL bike..lol.
I just joined the site. Looking to get on a bike for trails and some mountain biking. I am beyond confused from doing research and talking to a local bike shop. I am hoping all the experts on here could maybe help me out, and I am looking forward to learning more. Please move this post to the right section if its not correct.
Here are a few bikes I was looking at, please let me know what your thoughts are. I am looking to do mainly trails with my gf, and some offroading (few small jumps, dirt, etc). Not sure if I should be going Hybird or mountain (leaning towards mountain.)
My local shop carries mainly the following brands, I have read that they are among the top brands. (please correct me if I am wrong).
Norco: (toss up between 9.2 and 9.1)(mountain)
Thanks in advance.
