I am looking for a beginning mountain bike for my 11 year old daughter. Want to do some easy fire trails now and maybe get into some beginning single track by the end of the summer. Very basic rides, but something that has a few bumps and hills in it. I have been trying to decide between the diamondback lux 27.5 ($550 retail) and the Raleigh Eva 3.0 ($389 retail). I have been told in a bike shop by someone who had the raleigh but not the diamondback that they are equivalent bikes. My understanding from reading forums is that similar price point bikes will be of similar quality. The price difference between them is significant, so I was hoping for some advice. Through work, I am able to get a significant discount on the diamondback which would actually bring them into the same price range.
Thank you for any help.
