    Looking to get into biking need advice

    I am about 6'1 260 and i am wanting to get into mtb. I went to my lbs and they had me looking at a 2010 rockhopper comp disc and a Gary fisher mamba 29er.

    Being over 250lbs is there any other good beginner bike?

    Budget is right around 850$

    I posted in the beginners forum and was getting different responses because I am a heavier rider.

    I took the time to do a side by side comparison on both of these bikes, based on what I saw was their component list on their websites. These bikes were damn near identical in every way. At this point, pick the one that you feel most comfortable in while riding, and that has the color you like. Oh yeah, and find out what theif fram warranties are.
