I am wanting to start training, and wanted to Mountain Bike on single track and open trails. Any recommendations
on a bike? Looking for something decent but not breaking the bank.
I'd echo a 29er hardtail. A decent hardtail can be had for a fair price. I'd shy away from budget full suspension bikes. I mountain bike regularly, great exercise. Like stated above a 29er hardtail is a bike that will keep you happy for years to come, even if you add others to the stable. Plus bikes are all the fad right now....
You need to consider where you will mostly be riding, and a budget.
And remember most times not only are higher end components lighter and pricier, but most times more durable.
I bought a bike this time last year for hunting and exercise. I had no idea what I wanted. I didn't know enough about the different brands to know.
My recommendation is to go to your local bike shop and ride all they recommend in your price range.
Just like buying a bow you can only do so much research before you just have to get them in your hands and see which you like the best.
