Mountain Bike Suggestions
I have rode bike all my life, on and off. Right now I have a Schwinn Automatic Comp Joey Garcia Signature Model. It's a Freestyle, and I'm looking to get a Mountain Bike. A couple of weeks ago I had went to Penn Cycle and looked around. I found a Schwinn (before they went to crap), and I can't belive I didn't buy it. It was a top-of-the-line Moab 3 (I think 3), and was special edition with disc brake's. It was discounted pretty good, but I didn't buy it. I am sooooo stupid. Very nice bike too. Agh!
Ok, so I was at the same bike store last night - looking around. Well, I didn't look close enough just browsed through.
So now, I turn to you to recommend me something. I do not want to spend more than $700, no more than $800 (that's pushing it). I'd like to have quality Shimano components, RapidFire Shifters, and nice shocks (adjustable rebound and the other thing). I also would like to do a lot of just "riding". My dad has a cruiser, and I noticed with the not as wide tires it went a little bit faster. I don't plan on doing hardcore trails at first, but I'm sure I could find some different tires.
I'll check here if you have any questions.
