Thanks guys, I will probably go the Bikes Direct route, probably ht, 26" wheels, lockout fork, etc. I do not see my self doing heavy downhill, probably just fire roads and some XC trails.

Clydes and mountain biking

Any of you guys ride MTB? If so do you do downhill, XC or just roads? I am interested in trying it out, but have absolutely no experience.
