Just new to the world of mountain biking and trying to buy a good solid sub 1000 hardtail 29er (like thousands of others). Three currently viewing are:

KTM Ultra Sport
Whyte 529
cube LTD Pro

know nothing about gears, frames, shocks, geometry etc and there are virtually no reviews on the KTM & Whyte. need some solid advice from experienced riders on the bikes above!! Can anyone help me out??
