    Trek 6700 or Gravity from BikesDirect?

    Hey everyone, I'm looking for advice between buying a used (like new) 2006 Trek 6700 and a new Gravity or Motobecane from BikesDirect. All are about the same price ($600-700), but I guess what I'm really curious about is the quality of bikes on BikesDirect and if the components on those bikes are better than the ones on the Trek 6700 (I'm not very familiar with mtb components yet). Lastly, is a 29er a good idea for a beginner? Any advice is appreciated!!

    In this case, the new bikes direct is a clear winner. That used trek is worth about 300 less than asking

    I was almost in the same boat as you several month ago and I chose Gravity .1 also my budget was smaller. So far no regrets, really happy with the bike.
