I've decided that I want to get into mountain biking. I've rode on some pretty technical trails a handful of times with some friends using my fathers bike but i now need and want to get one of my own. I'm currently caught in between getting a 2013 Marin Bobcat Trail for around $700 or a 2013 Trek Wahoo for around $475. I'm not sure what would suit me better or if the Marin would be worth it for me (kind of broke college student)? I'm just under 5'11" the Marin is a 17" and Trek a 19." I'm a noob to mountain biking so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Marin for the fork value on the fun trails. Tapered aluminum steerer 4.5lb fork.
But--
Depending on your inseam you are also close to a 19. So note down the top tube length and reach if available and try and ride some bikes with similar dimensions locally to get your fit. You can also call the seller for fit help.
