I'm still trying to figure out what my first mtb will be and the owner of a LBS told me that he can order me an 2005 Ironhorse Warrior Elite for $1000.00 (Normally $1500 at Performance Bike). He has none in tock to test ride howver. He says that you won't find a better FS bike for the money(?).

The Warrior has those newfangled Shimano doulbe shifterss and it has disc brakes. Should I go for it?

I doubt you'll be able to do anything better for a brand new bike. You'll love the Dual control shifters, and LX hydros will stop you on a dime.

Go for it and don't look back!

Ok. Gotta try those flipper shifters though to make sure the aren't to weird.
The owner has some 17" in boxes and maybe I'll agree to order a 21" if he lets me tool aorund on the small
bike to test it out.
