help needed making a choice

417 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Joe - Kona
hello all. i've been looking into mountain biking. i've visited a bunch of LBS shops and have narrowed my choices down to two. now I was hoping to get some opinions on which bike may be the better buy. a gary fisher marlin for $380, or a trek 4500 for $410. opinions and input is greatly appreciated. thanks.

Take a test ride on them both, then choose the one that feels more comfortable to you. If it doesn't fit right, nothing else is going to matter much.
Same company, same bike?

Take a close look. I believe those are basically the same bike. The frames are the same, and i think it's the same even down to the grips. Go with which paint you prefer.
