So I'm in the market for a 29er hardtail, and ideally want to spend about $1300 ish. I'm currently riding a 2003 GT iDrive 2.0, which (with its V-brakes and ancient Rock Shox Psylo fork) is not ideal.
My LBS owner notified me that he could probably get me a 2013 Nail Trail for about $1300, which is well below it's $2k retail. And I'm also all about supporting my LBS.
My question is: Has anyone ridden one of these and can people speak to their ride quailty, etc.?
It's got pretty solid components and a sweet fox fork, but I've heard the geometry is kind of strange. I'm definitely interested in the bike, but need more info from riders. Specs below.
