hi there -
i'm looking at getting either the marin muirwoods 29er or the gt peace multi, mainly for riding around town and also for occassional off-road use. i've ridden them both and neither one seems hugely better feeling than the other, in terms of fit. the marin bike has the ability to take a fender and racks, which is nice, but i don't mind using a seatpost rack on the gt.
was wondering if folks had any thoughts to help choose between the two. i don't know enough about bikes to have a good sense of whether one has appreciably better components, better frame design, etc, etc.
and if there's another comparable bike that i've overlooked, happy to hear about that too. my criteria are rigid steel front fork and a price point somewhere in the general vicinity of the other two bikes, which is about $575...am totally willing to go up another $100-200 if that makes sense.
