    What Mountain Bike to Get?

    Hey,


    I'm looking to buy a new mountain bike. My price range is between $2000-$3000. It needs to be a good bike because I will be racing very much. Also, it has to be a hardtail. Any advice, please let me know.

    Thankyou,


    Max

    $2000-$3000 will get you a mighty fine hardtail.

    Do you have a bike shop where you live? If so, what brands do they sell?

    You work at a bike shop and you are asking US what to get?

    So, since you work at a shop and have bikes/info readily available, narrow your choices down and then show us what you're considering.

    Ok, we carry specialized and trek mountain bikes. I'm rethinking this a little here, should I go for an Epic Comp Full Suspension or a Specialized Stumpjumper HT. With the Epic I get full suspension which might be better for hard trail riding in Florida. But with the hardtail I get a much lighter racing machine that will be much better for climbing. Which one should I go for?
