Hello from Oakland, TN ....looking to buy a mountain bike

At 6'4", I am leaning toward a 23" frame, but some friends are saying I may not need that large a frame. I will be utilizing this bike about 80% on the street, I guess; but I want the ability to have some trail riding fun as well.

I am considering Specialized, Trek, and a few others; but I am open to suggestions. I want to spend around $350.00 to begin with. Thanks!

Hi Greg and welcome to BikeForums.

I can't offer any help in the mountain bike department, I ride road bikes . Have you been to ? It will give you some good information about the size frame you need.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8
