I'm a student living in San Francisco.
Now I've read couple of posts from this forum and couldn't really find answers that I wanted.
(Oh boy... I can feel the flames coming up on my post...)
The bike store's employee told me I should get a 19".
I'm 6 feet tall, weight in at about 150 lbs.
I'm a noob at riding mountain bikes and I want to get one to get around San Francisco.
Now I have about $400 budget, but I fell in love with a $600 after riding one.
The bike store recommended that I buy a Gary Fisher Merlin but it's design and color I didn't really like.
It was $400 though.
What caught my eye was the Gary Fisher Tass. The grey/black one.
I tried riding on it and man.. was it smooth! But the price was $600.
My friend said I should hold back and try riding other bikes but I dunno... that bike keeps coming up on my mind.
Is it a good bike to go around city grounds? Also what other bikes (Entry level) do you recommend for me for city rides?
I'm selling my gamecube/ps2 to save up more =P
Are there any other bikes that are similar to that at a cheaper price?
Thanks for the help.
