I want to purchase a trail bike (newby, I am use to riding a 12 speed, can't wait to hit the trails this summer). What are your opinions on the Giant Boulder SE W, the KHS alite 150, and the Brodie Lightning. I have also spoken with a few store managers, but I am also looking for advise from people who are out there biking. Thankyou so much for your opinions and advise.
Can you provide links to see the specifications?
What kind of trails.
How much experience do you have
What alternate uses for the bike(eg commuting, local transport, touring, keep fit)
What is your budget
What is your size
Giant Boulders are good bikes, and great value. I commuted on one for about 12 months. I got hit by a car, and it only needed new forks and a new front wheel. One of my Christmas projects is to get it back on the road as a backup.
