Newbie needs advice
I will be buying my first "real" mountain bike. I don't want anything outrageous for my first bike. That will be my second bike! Something like, say.... a Litespeed Pisgah! So what is a good, solid first mtb that I don't have to modify the crap out of as soon as I bring it home to make it decent? I would like to keep it under $1000, preferably even under $750. Also, a hardtail will work fine for me. As for riding, I will be taking it on some pretty good trails, so I do need something rather durable. Thanks for any advice.
