That's called personal choice. Listening to someone's "experience" is fine but that someone may not have the answers that's in the listeners best interest. If one says that a certain bike is no good, I would suggest that the listener do a little investigating on their own and arm themselves with some personal knowledge. The world is full of self proclaimed "experts" that may or may not be as knowledgeable as they proclaim, let alone having a personal agenda.
