    Mountain Bike Recommendations?

    I have been looking for a new mountain bike to ride this summer but haven't been in the bike market for quite a while. I am not a hardcore racer, but am looking for something to have fun with. The only problem I have run into is finding a bike that is the right size. I am 6' 6" tall. Any recommendations would be great!

    im guessing a 22 inch frame depending on your leg size. A local bike shop can fit you to one best. Hard to tell ya what kind of bike without knowing your price range.

    Have you considered a 29er at all?

    I would say my price range would be something along the lines of $600-$800.
