Mountain Biking - Need Advise:.....trail Bikes
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I want to purchase a trail bike (newby, I am use to riding a 12 speed, can't wait to hit the trails this summer). What are your opinions on the Giant Boulder SE W, the KHS alite 150, and the Brodie Lightning. I have also spoken with a few store managers, but I am also looking for advise from people who are out there biking. Thankyou so much for your opinions and advise.

What kind of trail riding do you mean? I dont know much about any of those but Giant is a good brand to start with. Just go to some shops and ride some bikes, ask questions and get what you whant.
My first bike was a DB Sorrento, its kind of a trail bike, mabe a little stout but it is a awsome bike for the price. And it is still taking a beating!

How much experience do you have
What alternate uses for the bike(eg commuting, local transport, touring, keep fit)

Giant Boulders are good bikes, and great value. I commuted on one for about 12 months. I got hit by a car, and it only needed new forks and a new front wheel. One of my Christmas projects is to get it back on the road as a backup.
