I bought my first bike (Felt Nine 80) last fall to give mountain biking a try. I loved it and so did the rest of the family (wife and two boys) so we all have either entry level bikes or bought used. No that I feel pretty confident I am going to stick with the sport, I want to upgrade. I put a lot of thought into upgrading my Felt with a new wheelset and fork, but while visiting a few local stores, decided I a larger frame size fit me better. My wife will get my bike and I'm now searching for myself something.
The max I'm willing to spend is $2000, but I'd like to stay well below that. The Airborne Goblin is very tempting, but I have no way to demo one. However, the geometry seems very similar to my Felt and while I don't have anything else to compare it to, it seems to ride fine to me.
My local shops carry Trek, Felt, Giant, Specialized, and Cannonade. What bikes should I be looking at?
