Trek 6000 Reviews anyone?
I've been doing some research lately and this forum has been a great resource. I don't know anything about mountain bikes and only scratched the surface within the past few weeks. I'm looking into purchasing an entry level mountain bike $200-400. I'm about 5'10" 150lbs since I know that has to do with the frame. At first I was going to purchase the dual suspension bikes sold at dept stores until I came across this forum. I'm hoping to get into light trails until I get more into it then into more challenging trails as I progress.
So heres my plan if anyone cares to share their thoughts on it. I plan to find a used bike to start off with so if I crash haha I won't be as concerned with a new one. Also, if I realize that I can't devote as much time into it I won't be kicking my ass for spending a $1000 on a bike thats sitting in the garage collecting dust.
Heres what I found...
19.5" aluminum frame
Rock Shox front suspension
quick release front and rear tires as well as seat post
...forgot to add that I have a diamond back outlook in the backyard. is that bike any good? i know the changing gears on it sometimes dont go smoothly and it isn't as light as some bikes i've seen at the flea market and at REI.
