Hey everyone, I'm sure you get this a lot and it's probably preference, but I want to know some experts and personal input on my choosing my first bike. I will be doing some intermediate trails, I have been biking a few times in a rented bike and I love it, but I want to get my own and so on... My budget is $500, I would love a bike $400 or below, but thats VERY rare. Post up bikes (and links) to bikes you have ridden or would be a good choice for me now. I think I wanna go hardtail becuase I'm not doing any intense downhill. Just some nice, up, down, up down. Not many mountains in my area, but plenty of hils. I really love the Motobecane Fantom Trail Bike...even if it is $600 at directbikes.com. Its a great deal and I can put out a little extra cash for something like that. I would like to have a shock lock as well as disc brakes, but those are preferences.
Thanks in advance for any input!
