So i posted this in the Bike and Frame forum aswell, didnt realize there was a beginner forum so here is the jist of it...
Hi guys my name is Igor and i just joined here, so hello all.
Now to the important stuff, I am getting back into the sport of riding, I will mainly ride aggressive trails, no crazy jumps or anything of that sort. Now my questions are, Should i go with a XC or FR bike, ive done a bit of research and come to the basic conclusion that a FR frame it built a bit stronger? but will the increase in rake make it difficult to traverse technical terrain? I am looking at Iron Horse bikes because they are priced very reasonably and i could upgrade the components as i desire with out the initial cost. My price range is at $900 for a complete bike, excluding riding gear, I am looking at full suespension bikes. If it help I am 5'7" and about 155lbs. Any and all input is welcome as long as its constructive.
Updates, i got a sweet new gig so my budget has increased to about $1800. Also could you give me some names that you would recommend for me to check out?
