Hey, Im one of those guys trying to get his first bike. I have done lots of research on bikes. Im really looking at the Kona NuNu, GF Tassajara, Specialized Rockhopper, Trek 4900, and Giant XTC2. I havent seen too much info on here about Rocky Mountain bikes. What dou you guys think about them? Would you recommend one? I have a buddy who can get me a Rocky Mountain Hammer for $900 bucks. What do you guys think?
Also there is a LBS here that has Kona NuNus for $700 with disk brakes, but i did some research and seems the fork on those arent too good. Any suggestions?
