I made sure to look through the stickies before i posted as to make sure i dont get into a subject that gets touched every day, but im looking to get into mountain biking. I'd like to spend under a grand all together. Im looking well rounded bike that i can use to learn on as well as later use on some more dangerous trails. i would also like to be able to ride it to work. I went to REI today and looked at some bikes but i had no idea where to start.
