Mountain bike Newbie- FT Worth Tx, LBS?
I decided that I would like to get into mountain biking. I went by a local dicks today and just sat on a few bikes to get a general idea, but decided against making any purchases before I did research.
Basically going into this I know I feel more comfortable on 20" and 22" frames. ( I'm 6'1" ) but if I might feel more comfortable on something smaller, I'll have to wait and see at a Lbs, which is my problem.
I live in DFW, and would like to head to a LBS to probably make a purchase on a Used Hardtail in the 300 dollar range. Dicks had some DB Responses for around 300, but from what I read in the read first, generally since the ones there had disc brakes other parts are probably not as good?
Can anyone recommend me a LBS that I should head to where I wont get ripped off, or generally get a good deal?
I read the Read first, but to be honest I'm much more of a audio / visual learner. I don't retain what I read very well. I would rather speak to someone in person.
