2011 Tarpon vs 2010 Trek 4300
Which would be a better decision for someone just getting into the sport?
The Tarpon has very little ride time and is in great condition as well as shimano alivio cranks and a bontrager trip 2 computer. $375
The 4300 is non-disc, great condition with ver little ride time as well. $350
The Tarpon doesn't say it has a lockout fork

The 4300 does

I really like being able to lock the fork, especially for climbing and road riding. That, plus the fact that I just like the 4300s, would make me go with the 4300.
Around that price range, you might also consider:
Save up to 60% off new Mountain Bikes - MTB - Front Suspension Gravity BaseCamp 3.0
Mountain Bikes - MTB - Dawes Haymaker 1500
Hope this helps!
Ended up grabbing the 4300 for 300.
Nice. Welcome to mountain biking!
Great! Be sure to post some pics -- happy riding!
