Monza and Giant

Hey there, looking for a used mountain bike for commuting and light trails and I came across these two..a Monza (?) velo sport and a Giant Rincon. I was able to find some info online about the Giant but nothing about Monza. Has anyone heard of this company before or seen this bike?



And the Giant:

Both are very low end bikes with cheap quality components. Spend a little more and get a much better commuter candidate.

The Monza is a cheap department store bike (the flimsy, stamped U-brakes are a giveaway). The easy choice between the two is the Giant.

But like oddjob2 says, even $100 can get you a lot of mtb in a hot market.
