I am just starting out on an MTB. I had an BSA Mach 10, 15 years before...again going back to the joy of cycling.
I have shortlisted 2 Hardtail MTBs.
1) Fantom Terrano (3x8) speeds
2) Scholl Galaxy (3x7) speeds
I tried out both, but found the Scholl MTB more comfortable than the Fantom bike.
Now the fix:
1) Does a difference of 3 gear means much?
I will be riding mostly on the road turf and sometimes for pleasure mountain treks.
What would be suggestible... Quality Wise & Ride Comfort wise?
