My first mountainbike
I'd like to purchase my first mountain bike and I'm kind of undecided between two models, which both fits my budget (they are approximately the same price) and riding plans. Here are the links:
scott contessa 610
SCOTT Contessa 610 Bike - SCOTT Sports
trek 4 series 4700
4700 Disc - Trek Bicycle
The Scott contessa is specifically designed for ladies while the trek is unisex. Does any of you girls have experience with unisex mtb? I there really a difference between unisex bikes and specifically designed for ladies? Any suggestions on the two bikes?
The main difference between a WSD (womens specific design) and unisex is that the wsd usually has a shorter top tube for shorter torsos, the top tube usually drops or slopes for a lower stand over height, and sometimes there are other little things(fork setup for less weight, special grips, special saddle)
Ride them both, see which one you like better.
Instead of the 4700 look at and ride the Cali S. Good RockShox XC32 fork for trails. The Suntour fork on the listed bikes is for bike paths.
it's a suntour xcr. those are supposed to be better than that.
