here is my situation, i had a 95 or 96 gary fisher hoo koo e koo that just got stolen, i really like the bike, put it though hell, and ride everyday (although not always offroad)my only complaint about it was that it was fairly heavy.
so i have been out of the market for a while now and dont know what all is available. the type of riding i do is mostly on trails, alot of concretet type stuff, on curbs and whatever else i can climb on or jump off of. i mainly want something that is lighter and comprable to that bike or better, i know the new hoo koo e koo are aluminum frame, but thats about all i know.
so can you reccommend a couple bikes that i could maybe research and get all the specs on for the type of stuff i ride and type of quality i'm considering?
maybe one or two from each of the main manufactuers, i have two weeks to make a decision on what to get.
