    Need help! 2012 Giant Revel 0 vs. 2012 Diamondback Overdrive 29er?

    I am torn between the:

    2012 Giant Revel 0 for $600.00

    and the

    2012 Diamondback Overdrive 29er for $500.00

    I am pretty new to mtn biking and ride single track desert trails. Which is a better bike for the money? Would I even notice the difference in components and is a 29er the way to go?

    Thank you for your advice!

    29er is the way to go i think. a friend of mine which is heavier than me and usually was alot slower just got a new cannondale 29er. and a cannot keep up with him now. its fast and does really well in turns.

    Ive got a buddy in the same boat as you- new to mountain biking and on a tight budget. Hes pretty set on getting a 29er though and the overdrive 29er is on his list. Id say go with the Diamondback the Giant has a little better spec sheet but the 29ers wheel size is perfect for the desert.
