HELP! Pick me my 1st MTB!
Ok guys so Im giving myself a christmas present and since I dont know much about mountain bike Id appreciate some input. Basically I need a bike for some winter commuting, trail riding and those rowdy moods when the track bike just doesnt do it.
this is what im looking at right now
stock 07 Gary Fisher X Caliber 29er
stock Gary Fisher HiFi Deluxe GS
Klein Pulse Pro SS conversion with DeKerf Ti Fork
Bontrager bars, saddle
WTB Lazer beam rims with SHIMANO silent clutch LX rear hub, Specialized Stout front hub
Radially laced front wheel, 3 cross rear
SCHWALBE 1.5" slick tires (Brand new)
Pure Crankset w/bashguard
Magura Hydraulic rim brakes (Fresh pads and bleed)
ODI Ruffian lock-on grips
Id really appreciate some insight as to what each bike would ride like and what strengths and weaknesses are annnnnd ultimately which one I should go for.
