    newbie decisions

    Good day, im new to MTB and to this forum.
    I'm a 36 year old, 230 lbs dad.
    And i came into mtbiking coz jogging is straining my feet and knees too much. So basically, im going mtb for slimming down, mostly paved roads and some easy off road trails. Kindly help me out. I bought a fairly new 17 inch SGM intensity xc from my cuz and works fine for me except for feeling a little cramped in the cockpit. I found a used 2013 18 inch Trek 3500 frame with a control tech seatpost on olx for P4700. I would like to know if there is much difference on sizing and quality.
