Hey guys just joined up and looking for some advice...been riding my local trail for a while now.because I'm away alot I just hire there bikes when I go but want to start up so looking at getting my first bike.

I think I want to stay hard tail for now as iv been told its better to learn on. been looking at two bikes

Second hand giant stp £150 but there's no disc brakes or anything like that

Or a new gt Karakoram looks nice but don't want to pay £500 if its crap.haha

What do you guys think about these bikes?

Cheers for any help you can give
