My Ride: What else?

I'm 5'5" what do you guys recommend for a noob looking to do a little bit of beach riding and street riding as well as trail riding in the desert and mountains which i'll do most of.

So where do I start?

Good job on reading the entire thread, you're on the right path...I'd say the first place to start is your nearest bike shop.

Buying a bike is much like buying a suit, it's all about fit and feel....go have fun test riding as many bikes as you can, if the 3700 is in your price range, then go for it
