Hey, I'm just a beginner on the bikes market and I have a quite a reduced budget.
So, I would like to buy my first mtb to ride mostly on single tracks. it has to be a good climber, but I also want to have fun riding down. And I would like to learn some technical stuff.
right now I've seen two offers of 2012 bike half price:

and the Merida one twenty 900D:
