hey fellow cyclists. i'm stuck in a decision to buy a bike to get around town while im in college. i dont need to tackle Everest, yet some rugged qualities are wanted. going off curbs and uneven ground happens alot.
i have these two options i came across while searching:
2005 Mongoose Tyax comp $200
2006 Mongoose Tyax comp $220
2007 Trek 820 $260
i know people are gunna say "trek over mongoose" but think about this. mongoose's tyax is one of the upper model hardtails they offer. while the 820 is Trek's lowest mountain bike available.
what do you think?
