    best value on mountain bike

    hi there,
    i lost my bicycling magazine issue which showed the best value
    for a mountain bike...i think it was like three or four issues ago.
    anyone remember which bike was rated the best one?

    thanks in advance

    Yep,

    Mine, here's a link: Cannondale F2000SX - Large

    Boxed and shipped to your door!

    if that's not what you were thinking about, I can't help you. Was it BIKE, Mountain Bike Action, Mountain Bike, Dirt Rag...etc. Most mags do a comparison on a regular basis. What was the price range!

    No offense, but Bicycling Magazine stinks. I would look for recommendations from people here ... what is your price range?

    I think the Gary Fisher Sugar would be worth taking a look at. In addition, Giant is famous for providing great groupos in this price range. Have fun!

    If you're interested in a XC full squish, look at Specialized FSR XC. They're the standard by which other Lightweight FS bike are measured. The Giant XTC is well liked by their owners. Trek Fuels are similar to GF Sugars in performance. Cannondale Jeykll are out of this price range! What else? K2 has a well made bike. There are just sooooo many. Cruise you LBS and test ride as many different models as you can. Go back and test ride you 3 favorite again and again!
