    Which Bike is the best

    Which bike here is the best.
    I'm Canadian 16 usually bike ride around the streets hit jumps and go to some medium to light trails.
    Price range 200-300 Somewhere around that.

    None of them are

    you're looking at low end, big box store, entry level XC-oriented bikes. They are not intended for anything other than light trail use. If it's a dirt jump bike you want, plan to spend upward of $800 CAD to get a decent one, or shop for used.

    My advice is to save up a bit more, figure out the type and style of riding you will be doing, then seek out the appropriate bike for that kind of riding.

    Lastly ....stay out of Sportchek, they are a big box flogger of clothing essentially, and their line of bikes is decidedly low end, low service, stuff. Get yourself to a real bike store, and then you'll learn more.

    Best of luck, Jim

    Pick whichever fits you best. If you really enjoy biking, you'll get a better bike later on.

    went to college knowing nothing about bikes. All I knew is that I enjoyed riding them. I bought a Schwin Ridge-Al from Academy. Used it in a mountain biking class and really fell in love with mountain biking. Since then I've worked at a bike shop and built up two very nice bikes for myself.

    You're starting out a little better than I did. Don't let people on here try to dissuade you from buying a bike just for having fun with it. Someone will always have a "Better" bike than you. Don't let it get in the way of your fun.
