Hi guys, newbie round this neck of the woods as ive been off the bike for a few years after injury and looking to get back to biking but im in a bit of a dilemma at the moment i have the choice of 2 trek bikes and i cant decide which to go for im more swayed to the 4300 as it has hydraulic brakes where the 3500 has cables but there is a £70 difference in price (about $105) between the two. As a beginner what would you guys recommend both bikes are second hand but are as new im told by sellers. Im not wanting to go and spend thousands on a bike as i am just returning to it and would upgrade later if i see fit.
my pros and cons are really in the braking area as i much prefer hydraulic brakes over mechanical and the distance to collect them the 3500 is 2 hours away and the 4300 is about an hour.
anyway enough of my gibberish
what would you guys choose
2012 trek 3500 @£200 ($300)
2013 trek 4300 @ £270 ($400)
Im Stewart by the way
