    New to riding and getting a new bike

    I was wondering which of these bikes would be best for a new rider. I will be riding on all types of surfaces. I am 6'1 230lbs. I would like to not spend a whole lot on a bike. the bikes i was looking at were the Specialized hard rock disc 29
    Giant Roam 2
    Trek 3700 Disc
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    If you are going to ride trails, the roam probably isn't a good idea. Its more of a commuter type bike. Look into the Giant revel or talon for that kind of riding. Otherwise, if just being on pavement and gravel, the roam would be the best fit.
