I'm wanting to get into biking and have a pretty tight budget. I found this one and I'm interested in it but I don't know much about it. Does anybody have any experience with it? Also what other bikes would be good for around $250?
I want something that can take a bit of abuse. I don't plan on jumping off any 10ft drops but I would like it to be able to survive a few tricks and such and the occasional offroad bashing.
They don't have this bike on their website so I figure maybe it's an older model. I'm a little afraid of Mongoose since...~Gasp~ Wal-mart sells them too...
I went to see this bike in person the other day and rode it around the store and it seemed pretty nice but a perfectly flat level floor doesn't really tell you much about how a bike handles.
