    What bike should i get?

    Hi, i am relatively new to mountain biking and i want to get into mountain biking more. so i was wondering which bike is better, Trek Cobia 2013 or BMC Sportelite se01 deore/slx 2012. i would like to use it as a cross country sort of bike and trail riding, dont know if that comes under cross country. :/

    thanks for your help!

    have you ridden either bike? probably better to see if you feel comfortable on them, fit of a bike is important.

    The Cobia is a 29 and has good geo and components. Should be discounted because it is discontinued.

    If it was me I would buy used as for the same money you would get a better bike with better quality components. I did and I got a great bike for a bargin.
