Hi, i'm kinda new to bike buying and don't know what to look for in a bike.
I'm 5'9" and 130 pounds, and the budget is around $1200 including tax and shoes with toeclips, pedals for the shoes... and i'm 13 so i need to be able to grow into the frame.
i found a few bikes to start off with:
specialized FSRxc (it's a little out of the budget but if it's really good i'd be willing to spend the extra buck)
giant yukon fx (it sounds like this isn't one of the bikes I'll be considering in the end)
giant trance 2
