I'm currently in the process of purchasing a new mountain bike. I am not an avid rider, but am looking for something I can use on & off trails w/some city riding.
I have visited a few dealers and have seen two (maybe 3) models that seem close to what I am looking for. These models are: The Sunfire (made by Fuji) and the Boulder (and Boulder SE) made by Giant. I have looked at specs, but besides knowing that aluminum frames are good and that sealed bearings are important... I'm kind of clueless.
Can you please tell me what you think of these models (Why you would or why you would never purchase these models; Which one you think is better; What I should be looking for when purchasing; What kind of "after sale" service I should be looking for...)?

I thank you in advance.
