    Beginner looking to buy a bike

    I came on this site cause I was looking for some advice about buying a bike and to find people to ride with. Im 5'8, 185, in pretty good shape, just built. Im mostly torso, the inside part of my leg is around 28-29 so usung that 12 inch formula it comes out to be a 16-17 inch bike. It seems like most people my height on here ride 17 inches. The guy at Trek recommended an 820, which is only $260 bucks. I did see a Gt Avalanche disc 3 on sale for 300 from 400 and was wondering peoples opinions on these two, or if you had other recommendations.

    Thanks,
    ben

    Yeah, those are great beginner bikes. Try everything in your price range and get what fits you best.
