Need help deciding: Giant Rincon or Trek 930 w/ rock shox front suspension

Hey everyone.. i'm a completely new person when it comes to bikes but I've recently been given an offer on two different bikes.. I really didn't find munch on the Giant Rincon bike.. so if anyone out there can help me determine the best bike out of the two.. please do..


Giant Rincon - Stock parts - $30 (No cracks or rust on frame... says there is rust on the bolts)

Trek 930 with rock shox front suspension - $125 (no cracks or rust on frame)


What do you guys think?

Thanks for any help in advance!

No idea... sorry.

Let's just assume they've been used but aren't beat up..

As far as years.. I couldn't figure that out either

Without more information, it's hard to say.

Overall, the Trek is a nicer bike, but at 4x the price, it isn't the better bike.
