Thanks!
Brings up the old question of what makes a bike a men's bike

ETA just realized these both come in only one size and would be too big for me. I'm 5'4"

It should be fine, you can always shave down the seat post if it's still to high.

The thing I like about costco is their awesome return poilcy which is amazing for a bike that will get abused & as you grow in hardtails you will want to upgrade your specs at which point you can return it & get a higher quality bike,

I bought this bike https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/us/en/vitus-nucleus-27-vr-mountain-bike-grey-2021/rp-prod195571 for around $800 fantastic specs for the price & its very easy to upgrade when I feel ready e.g. dropper post, tubeless rims...

Unfortunately the new version of this bike is marked at 999 welcome to 2022.

What are your thoughts on this one? Says size large but also says fits 64" - 74" height

This one doesn’t seem to have brand name specs. That being said you might be able to upgrade the important stuff like brakes.
