Looking For a 2008...

Hello All,

I am new to the community, and also new to Mountain Biking. After reading the MTB FAQ Forum I would like a little more help.

I am looking to purchase a hardtail. Not sure which one to buy. I have been doing some research and checked out a few on the web and around town.

I am 6'1 and 240lbs with a 30.5" inseam. I was thinking possible a 19" Frame or Large?

These are the bikes I looked at below, but if you have any other suggestions please let me know.
  • DiamondBack Response Sport
  • DiamondBack Response Comp
  • GT Ruckus UF
  • GT Chucker 2.0
  • GT Chucker 3.0
  • Specialized HardRock Sport Disc
  • Specialized P.1 All Mountain Disc
  • Specialized RockHopper Comp Disc


I greatly appreciate your opinions and taking the time to respond to my thread. I am looking to purchase the bike within the next few weeks so I look forward to your reply.


Thanks.

I think you need to find one of those Chuckers you looked at in a 19". When you do...all your worries will be over.
