    GF Mamba vs Trek 6000

    Hey,

    New to the forums, been around the singletrak a while. I used to have a KHS in 99-2000 until it was stolen.......anyway I'm getting on a new bike soon and my local shop is suggesting a GF Mamba due to my height (6'3") However it seems in my price range the Trek 6000 has better components.

    Any help or suggestions are appreciated

    Which one feels better? Taller dudes seem to gravitate toward 29ers like the Mamba ...

    not sure if i agree with recommending a 29er because you're taller; however, i'm 6'4 and really like it. give each a test ride and see which feels better.

    the trek does have a little better components, but it's not like they blow the mamba out of the water. really, see which rides better and go from there. if you're happy how both ride, then see which you can get the better deal on. maybe ask to see if they can upgrade some parts on the mamba if you go that route.

    good luck! keep us posted!
