    Noob needing some help with purchase

    Hello all,

    Sorry I don't mean to spam if this is in the wrong place but I am looking to buy a used bike and want to know if they good at their prices and what would be a "better" bike.


    They are a used 2013 Crosstrail Comp Disc (700$) and a used 2010 Rockhopper SL (750$ USD)

    Here are the specs:

    Really depends on the type of riding you're going to be doing. What type of riding are you planning on doing?

    Both. Short commute to work <2 miles and trails when I'm free.


    I decided to go with the rockhopper, and it is in even better condition than I had thought. Though I had to spend and extra 75ish in gas money to get it!

    My next question is if it is worth picking up cheap road tires to switch out of? I do like the easy, scenic rides on pavement too.

    If you have nice smooth roads maybe. I ride pavement on trail tires and it's no big deal, and fasttracks should be well, fast. For a few mile ride it won't make much difference. If you are doing a lot if miles it might.
