I have $1000 or so to spend, and i'm looking for something to ride in the DC/Virginia arena. So singletrack semi flat trails. I'm 6'4 and looking for a nice 29er but haven't see any that i'm in love with in that price range. The GF X-caliber looks sweet but its a bit out of my range. So i wanted to know if anyone knows of a rigid geared bike that might have better components and whatnot at the expense of a suspension fork. (So that i might upgrade at a later date, as to get some riding in now!) Or of course if you know of a deal somewhere id love to hear about it. But i'm trying to keep it from 1000-1200 tops. Thanks a ton guys.
