Hey guys, after a few weeks of pissing you guys off and doing the "VS" threads, I finally went out today and bought my first real MTB bike. I ditched the Hardrock and went with the Giant Rincon. Its Olive Green and looks nice. All Alivio components and a Suntour fork with 100 mm and preload adjust. The tires are I think what you call semi slicks. They have bumps but not only for mountain; there in between mountain and road tires. The bike altogether was $480. Good price? You tell me.
