This is my first post on this forum (just joined).

Im just starting out in mountain biking and am looking for a decent bike, im pretty sure im set on the Scott Aspect 30 and Cannondale f5. I dont want anything too expensive because where i live bikes ARE expensive (u.a.e). Im 14 years old and around 49kg if that means anything, and ill be doing some offroading in mountains and some just around my area, while doing smallish jumps.

Also, why is the scott more expensive when the cannondale had disc brakes and rock shox dart 3's compared to the dart 2's on the scott.

Any help would be appreciated
