I'm looking for an off the rack entry level trail bike for between $400 & $600. I want a hard tail and something that can be upgraded at a later date. any suggestions?
I live in a small town with one LBS, he sells GT and KHS. I've never heard of KHS bought i thought i remembered hearing that GT wasn't very good. So if i don't get it locally any brand suggested is fine.
Also is sizing as important with mountian bikes as it is with road bikes?
