    getting a new bike, need advice

    Im in the market for a new bike. I was set on a 2012 trek cobia for a while, but I just found a new 2011 trek fuel ex 5 at the lbs for just a couple hundred extra over the cobia. What do yall think I should do? I ride single track and XC, nothing too serious as I live in Houston. I am not sure if i should go for the hardtail 29er or the full suspension 26. Thanks for any advice.

    ride both. you should be able to tell if you like one over the other. I believe that your area is fairly flat so long climbs are probably not part of the characteristics tat you are looking for. post in your local forum and see what other people find appealing.

    I agree - best way to really get a feel is to ride both and see what works best for you
