I'm looking at getting this bike (Not that bike, but this one, Recoil Comp) as my first Mountain Bike.
I've heard HT are better for beginners? So should I look at one of those instead? I've heard FS are much nicer to ride though...
I plan on getting this at the beginning of May because that's when my summer break starts. I think that is the most I would want to spend as well.
My mom told me to look at something around $300, but I'm sure they will be more trouble then they are worth right? (Parts breaking)
I plan on going to a local bike shop, but I want some ideas in my head before I go. Since I'm a newb I'm going to trust what you guys have to say.
Thanks for any help you can give!
Edit: I put the wrong bike in the link. That is just the recoil, not the recoil "comp".
Also I found out the one on Amazon is the 2009 model.
I'm not sure if it makes a huge difference, but take that into consideration. I think the recoil can actually go down to $350 from what I've seen. I'm looking at the Recoil Comp.
