I have been a casual mt biker for 15 years and at age 51 am ready for my next bike so that I can take it up a notch. My old Niskiki Cascade (full rigid bike) is still operational but has many flaws and more replaced pieces, but now I want a full suspension bike and will be studying the post here, test riding locally available bikes and internet surfing in an attempt to find the best bike for my needs and a fair value in the $1500 range.

Good to be aboard!
