Sup all - so i've called local shops and read online .. but still unsure which bike to go with, would love some recommendations
i'm 5 10 - 170
name brands that I hear all tell me are specialized, gary fisher, trek and cannondale bikes.. i know this is based mostly of preference but most of these local shops sell one name brand or another would love to hear which name brand to go browse before hittin the shops.
FYI - would be biking off trail thru rugged terrain
Budget: $400 - $700
