I'm just getting into mountain biking and have dragged my friends in with me...
one of my friends has a budget of about $1,000 for everything ...
we found the Giant Yukon FX for $700 and the KHS XC 204 for $800
problem is we don't know which we should get! is the extra $100 worth getting the KHS?
I just read the pro review of the Giant Yukon FX and they seemed to love it.
please help us out!
