I'm new to this forums and I needed some help buying a newer bike.
Brief intro: I've been street riding for about a year now, but I use a KMart mongoose MTB that I bought used for about USD$ 60. It's slowly breaking down so I'm thinking of buying a newer one.
I recently saw a Rocky Mountain Vertex 70 carbon frame for USD$ 200. How can I know that this frame is actually carbon and is not defective or broken? Is that a good price for this frame?
