I'm looking at any entry level mountain bike; used mostly on paved, gravel, dirt roads, with minimal (if any) serious off road riding. With the help of local bike shops, and this forum, here are the 3 I can to choose from (all in my price range of about $400). I know the forks on all three models are not the greatest; but once again this is just an entry level bike.
Specialized Hardrock Disc
Giant Rincon Disc
(I am interested in used bikes, but I cannot find a good deal on craigslist; if anybody in the Southeast Michigan area knows of where I can go to find some used bikes, please let me know)
