Giant ATX 970
There is one for sale locally. What are your opinions? Most of the reviews I have read are pretty good. It is an 18" frame. I am 6 ft, kind of short legged so I think it would fit. I am just getting into MTBing and a hard tail would likely suit me just fine for the type of riding an old dude (50) would do.
I do realize that mtbs have progressed by lightyears since this thing was new, but I should be able to use that point to get it for a very reasonable price. I so understand that being FS it is likely to need bushings/etc. I am not very experienced as a bike mechanic, but, I am very experienced with mechanical gadgets in general, so having to do that sort of thing doesn't scare me....much.
