New Mountain Bike (NZ)

Hey Guys

I am 14 years old and I want to buy a new mountain bike soon, I want it to have full suspension and 27.5 inch wheels. I don't want to spend too much maybe around $1800 (NZ), if you guys could recommend any bikes or places I should be looking that would be great.

Thanks

Look at what's available, don't dismiss getting a 26" bike or a secondhand bike.

Nino Schurter won several won titles with his 27.5 Scale. It is a HT. I ride a FS Spark and think you will enjoy one. All the major manufacturers will have good bikes in your price range. Get one that fits well. Be sure to take some test rides.
