Hello all, as part of my exercise program, I thought it would be fun to actually get a mountain bike/or hybrid instead of always riding the bikes at the gym. I'm looking for a good bike in the $700-$1000 range. One of the local shops near my campus sells specialized, giant and trek. I really like the specialized bikes (they had a large selection of specialized) I'm looking for info on a good bike to get me started. It will be mainly for use riding to class, and probably some off road activity. Thanks in advance for any info.
