Beginner Mountain Bike Suggestions
I'm in the market for a Mountain Bike and am trying to get the best bike I can for my limited budget. I've got about $300 to spend, give or take. It will be used for trail riding, short commutes, and simple riding around the city. I'm 5'10.
After some reading, I'm under the impression I should go Rigid, or at the very most, Front Suspension. And for my budget, I'm assuming the simpler, the better, so I've been looking at Single Speed(which I assume is different that Fixed where as I can stop pedaling without a problem?).
Anways, one option I am considering is the Motobecane Outcast 29
. I've read some reviews and they are generally favorable, most stating some parts are on the cheap side but it's a great budget bike.
Any other recommendations?
