I had a BMX during my childhood days, and am a motorcyclist. Due to knee deteoriation, passion and opportunity to exercise, I intend to re-enter the cycling hobby.
While affordability is not a major hurdle (but will still feel the pain), I have a contradicting mind challenging me that getting a bike of that category, which gives me the "wow" impact is a luxury and is unnecessary.
I am a believer in "a price for a value", however, I also support that lower priced mtb is not that bad. My LBS has initiated the F600 for over $2500. Although I love the look (haven't tested the mtb), I wonder if there would be a need to own such a pricey mtb (assuming if the geometry is just right for me, in considerations to the other lower priced models with similar comfort and geometry fit)?
Please advice me, thanks heaps!
