    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

    Thanks,

    Cody

    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!
