I am looking at getting a new bike (My old bike is to small, and it has lots of problems), I'm probably just going to be riding it to and from school, and to friends houses and the post office.
I don't know much about bikes, but I want a 29er.
I can probably get a GT karakoram 2.0
for about $550
or an Avanti Montari 29.1
for around the same price.
The GT is second hand, although the guy bought it at the start of may, and hasn't used it much, the Avanti, would be brand new.
The GT has hydraulic brakes, the Avanti does not.
Other than that, I don't see much difference.
I need an XL (22-23") bike, because I'm around 6'5"
I don't want to spend more than $600 on a bike, can anyone help me out?
