    AM bike for 1500-2500?

    Looking for a good all mountain bike from 1500-2500 Cdn, preferably under 2200. I do about 70% trail and 30% downhill. Thanks in advance.

    Buy a used demo bike from a bike shop. You sometimes can get a practically brand new well maintianed bike for 30-40% off with a full warranty. hard to beat that.

    Santa Cruz just came out with the Heckler 27.5, with updated geometry and ISCG tabs. Could be an awesome affordable ride!

    Giant Reign 2 is 6" travel AM bike and $2300cdn. If you can find a 2012 in your size it might be ~$2k.


    Heckler might be great but I can't see you buying one in Canada anywhere near $2500.
