Buying bike on a budget
Hi all, I'm new to this forum but I'm hoping some of the more experienced people here could help me. I'm currently shopping around for a new mountain bike because I want to start hittin the trails around my house on the weekends. Anyway, im a teenager in a low paying job.. so I'm not gonna be able to afford anything wild, but I'm looking for a good solid bike between $500-$800, probably a hardtail. Anyways, if anyone can let me know what some of the best deals in that price range are I'd really appreciate it, so far I've looked at a Raleigh M80 '05 and a Gary Fisher Tassajara '05. if you could let me know what you think of those and give your own suggestions I'd be grateful.
