    GTA parks, which of these bikes ?

    Getting into some park, trail riding, mostly Kelso since I'm from Milton, and whatever is close to me.
    Nothing hard core, not looking for extremes here, just enjoying some time off.
    I found Commencal bikes and pricing is pretty cool, don't have a big budget here, probably up to $1500, but don't know what ti pick for our local trails, should I grab a AM bike with 160mm travel, or Trail bike with 120mm travel ?

    COMMENCAL 2016 | META HT AM ESSENTIAL ROCKSHOX 650B YELLOW 2016
    COMMENCAL 2016 | META HT AM ORIGIN 650B RED 2016
    COMMENCAL 2017 | META HT TRAIL RIDE 650B BLACK 2017

    The older you are, the less travel you need. I'm not saying that for everyone but I know myself I ride more careful now than when i was in my 30's.
    Friends don't let friends cheer for the TML

    No experience with Commencal, but there are lots of bike shops in your area so there are plenty of choices. In addition have a look at Royal Distributing in Guelph. They sell Marin and usually have lots of non-current bikes on hand. MEC has a good selection as well. I just picked up a 2016 Torrent 7.1 cheap in Milton and while I was shopping I noticed lots of 2016 models being sold off cheap. It might be worth your while to have a look through the local shops to see what's on offer.

    Those commencal bike specs look good, shame no way to test one though.

    Royal Distributing usually has a bike sale in a couple months if there is something there you like (and can wait). I think it's save the tax or something.

    Toronto Spring bike show is also coming up . I went last year but didn't really see any bargains, but you never know.

    This on sport chek seems ok also. Though maybe bit more XC than you're after
