After lots of bike store visits in a couple of cities, I've narrowed my options to three particular bikes along with the advice I received on here. I have ruled out 29'ers becaues I haven't felt comfortable on any that I have tried (I think it's the wider grips.) I dont' have the extra funds for FS, but I have expanded my price range. I'm looking for a bike for trails only (I have a bike for casual errands/greenway rides and a bike for commuting, so this will be dedicated to having fun off road.) I am riding single tracks with roots, limbs, and small logs. Don't care as much about speed, mostly interested in having fun and learning how to do the basics on a single track. Looking for a bike that I can use for the next couple of years. So, based on fit, I have it narrowed to:
Trek Skye SL Disc 16"
Giant Revel 0 Small
Specialized Rockhopper 15.5" (could afford the Comp model if upgrade is worth it)
Out of those three, which would you suggest for someone new to mountain biking (comfortable commuting on bike) using it only on trails/single track for fun? Thanks!
