A good street/trails bike
Hello, I am new here. I have had mountain bikes all my life, but I hardly ever rode them. I just recently started riding 20 inchers this spring. I have a Dyno right now, but it is rusted and the back brakes don't work. I am looking for a nice starter bike for around $250. I ride about 50% street 50% trails. I really never visit a skatepark.
I did some searching on the internet, and I like the Haro Backtrail X2, DK General Lee 20inch, and the Eastern Traildigger, but I know next to nothing about what makes a good bike, probably due to the fact that I've never had one.
Thanks in advance for the help.
PS: I've heard good things about freecoaster hubs and cassette hubs, what is so great about these?
