Hi, haven't rode in 20 years. I'm 47, 6'6" 240lbs with a 38" inseam. I will be riding trails, hills, and roads. Been doing a lot of reading and talking to LBS's. I want a 29r hardtail 23" frame with shock lock out, and have narrowed it down to the afforementioned bikes. I also looked at Harro and Giant but no stock availability.
Price difference between the two is $10 at $650 for the Hardrock and $660 for the Trek (CDN). The specs appear to be pretty much the same between the 2. So how do I know which bike will be better now and in the long run? Is there anything else I should be thinking about? Havn't rode either bike, won't let you take them outside when it rains, which it does alot in Vancouver.
