Hey guys, first of all i wld like to say hello. I am looking to buy my first bike. I will most likely be riding some trails here in fl and on some paved paths. I am looking at 2 different bikes, 2016 giant talon 3 ($650) and 2015 specialized pitch sport ($626). I have test rode both and liked both. The pitch seems quicker. I am at a loss. I know nothing about the brands or components. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance*
