    Hello,

    I am excited about getting into MTB and I have used my friends FS bike up la tuna canyon/wildwood and other trails near Burbank/Glendale ( I live in the San Fernando Valley so anything near) . I am purchasing my bike soon. I went into a local REI store to ride some bikes and really like the following (within my budget in mind, I am sure their are better options). I know based on my research that sometime it comes down to preference whoever what is a more usable bike for all trails in socal? I am new and the more I read up on it the less I can commit to decide. I am leaning more to a FS only because I don't plan to be buying another bike. Thank you for all the help and support and feel free to give me any advise or suggestions.

    I'd go for the Full Suspension. You can always upgrade parts later if you want, but it has a decent enough part spec.
