    How light are you wanting to go? If it were me, I'd try & find a cheap older aluminum frame from an entry level mountain bike, & then invest more money in a nice, light set of wheels. Reasons being...

    I had never heard of Giant when I first started mountain biking. Doesn't mean Schwinn was a better brand. Keep that in mind.

    Seriously doubt it. I know I'm not the only one who's been drooling over the idea for at least a few years, as it eliminates the issues I (& others) have with not liking the way 29ers feel, but not...

    I like felt, does a good job lining the ceiling of my car.

    The rule of thumb with two bikes at the same price point is to test each & go with the one that feels better to you. 650b is all the rage...

    You can try riding in north GA, but you'll spend days on boring old forest service roads before you find anything good, & by that time you & your bike will be covered in horse poo. Best to venture...

    Looks like all the major points have been covered. The only thing I can recommend that hasn't been said already is that starting out with a used craigslist bike might not be such a bad idea...a lot...

    Good to be back! 66, definitely going to have to make a trip up there this summer. Didn't even know OB was expanding to the east coast!

    Rigids on the trails will teach you a lot about control, precision, the dangers of kung fu death grip, & how to choose a smooth line. If you can enjoy the trails on a rigid MTB, you can enjoy them on...

    Zephyr is right about the cost...it took me well over a year to build a bike for less than I could buy a complete, checking daily on dozens of sites for deals. Not only that, but the attachment I...

    Bull Mountain in Dahlonega was pretty cool, or at least what I saw of it. Didn't quite make it to the top this time. Maybe next time.
