    Smile Advice on buying a bike for a newbie: my FIRST mountain bike.

    Hi folks,
    I'm new to this so go easy on me !
    I'm looking for a used bike for riding mainly trails and some on-road, and looking at a hard tail MTB, and came to the following ones for sale here in Australia. (Yes, this will be my First MTB)
    Can you advice if the price looks right, and whether the bikes are any good?

    Trek 6500 SLR, 2006-model, barely used condition, AU$500.

    Trek Superfly AL Elite, 2013-model, barely used condition, AU$1100.

    Thanks and any advice will be appreciated.

    Cheers,
    malherbi

    The superfly seems like a great deal asuming it fits you and if your trails aren't to hard what kind of trails are you riding?
    Hit it first, then we can see where to put the landing.
