Since I've given up on trying to anything with the huffy, I think I am going to buy a new bike this summer. I basically want an all arounder. I want it to be tough enough to handle a bit of urban, some trials, and still be light enough for some xc use with perhaps a wheelset change. Worst yet, I want it around $600 (sorry guys, road biking is still my true love).
I was looking at the Out of Bounds series hardtails that kona has. However, I have noticed that the frames from kona are quite on the pricey. Is there anything similar? I was looking at the KHS "rigid one" too, but it is also pricey. I'm not pickey as to steel or aluminum, a bad technique drop is going to hurt a bit regardless of frame material.
What else is out there in this price range?
