Thank you all for the feedback.
Some interesting points stated....


The only reason i didnt consider bikes like the Ogre is purely because of the budget!
Its very easy to find online images of Surlys, Salsa and others that seam exacly what i have in mind!
But as i never rode any of those bikes, or similar for the matter, i cannot grasp how much better or worth they are.


I have always thought that low entry-level bikes provided very strong and durable material that is just not that lightweight, and since im not that worried about that issue, i though of having a go with it...


With 700/800$, i could already find bikes with Deore components, good quality brakes and i dont think the frame would ever fail me if they are specified with mountain trails in mind!


The buy once cry once idea makes lots of sense and i vow for it in many others aspects in life....


I guess im just trying to get around it this time...
