    Choosing An AM Bike

    Hi,
    I want to start riding AM and I need some help choosing my first AM bike. Mybudget isn't that fat so I'm interested in a second hand bikes.
    I have found two options this far:
    1)Merida One Forty 800-D 2011 for 1000USD.
    2)Merida Trans Mission 900 2009 for 850USD.

    What do you think will be the best choose?

    Thanks!

    Merida isn't a very popular brand in the US so you probably won't get much help. If the components look good and it's in your budget, go for it!

    If money is not a big issue go with the Merida One Forty. It's definitely worth the extra $150...

    Thanks for your answers guys. I'm also considering waiting for the Black Friday which will be in November 29th.
    Do you know if there are any big discounts and sales (I'm talking about 70%+-) at shops like Chainreaction Or Jensonusa?
    Thanks
