Lower priced FS
I am relitively new to the sport, and am planning on moving to Tucson soon and getting really into it. I've done riding every summer in Colorado, but have always rented since I never had a bike. I looking mainly at XC, and prolly a little freeriding here and there. I'm a student and have around $1000 in graduation money to spend, and I want to most I can get for my money. The local shop wants me to go for either a Cannondale Jekyll 400, a Trek Fuel 80, or a Gary Fisher Sugar 4+. They all fall around $1100, which i am willing to spend for a good bike. Are there any suggestions or recommendations any of you can lend to me? If there are any other bikes, let me know. Any help is greatly appreatiated. Thanks.
I drink your MILKSHAKE
Specialized FSR XC Proven design, same frame as last year's Rockhopper FSR best bike for the money and the only sub $1000 dual squish I'll recommend. For about $1200 you can get an upspec'd version FSR XC Pro
Yea or wait a little while until your local shop puts some on sale... thats what I did they have a Jekyll 400 for $735 bucks right now and a rockhopper disk for $950... I got my Giant NRS for 850... there all 03 models but you save alot
