trek 4900 versus gary fisher marlin
Hey guys, I'm a pretty big newbie when it comes to mountain bikes, but I'm trying to get into it. I spent most of today bouncing between bike shops looking for bikes that fit me (I'm 6'5)
The choices came out to be between a 21 inch gary figher marlin for 550 bucks and a trek 4900 22.5 inch for 460 bucks. The 4900 is cheaper because it is a 2004 while the gary fisher is a 2005.
Right now I'm leaning towards the 4900, but I'm wonder what all your opinions are on these two bikes. is 460 really a good deal or is 550 for the fisher better?
