    Which is the better deal?

    I'm new and my current bike an old schwinn hardtail is no longer sufficient for the trails I'm thinking about buying either the diamondback atroz comp or a 14 devinci troy I found on Craigslist here is the ad

    Awesome devinci mtb. Solid built and fairly light for being a full sus. Deore brakes, shifter, and derailleur. a 2 x 10 setup with a brand new cassette and chain. Only two rides on them. has a Sram GX crank. 180 rotors front and back. Bike brakes and quick as it goes. Has a rockshox pike with a dual position fork. Fox float ctd rear shock. bike has frame tape so paint is in good shape. It's always been used as a backup bike so it has relatively low miles. DT swiss 350 hubs and the tires are set up tubelss. Bike is awesome. Asking 1000 obo.

    Since they are close in price I was wondering which was the better deal

    Thanks

    Well assuming the devinci is your size & has no issues, it would be my pick. Especially if you could meet the seller at a shop to have them take a look, (might want to call to see if they would do that for you for a few bucks) If it's not your size, then the Atroz, becuase it's better than an old schwinn hardtail.
