I was looking on BD and seen the Gravity29point4 does anyone know if they are good and do the frames hold up it is on sale for $699 a great price and I am looking to buy have a budget of $1000 also looked at the new access stealth as we'll tempting but for the price the Gravity is winning any help would be nice thanks.
Well, l guess it will be similar to any other sub-$1000 mountain bike.
That is, it will do the job but will have shortcomings if you take it on anything more than a family trail ride.
Maybe better to look for a good second hand bike if you have a limited budget.
I think lotusdriver is selling it a bit short. It is speced very well for that price point with a pretty decent fork. It looks like very good starter bike, better than what the majority of us start with. Just ignore their BS list price, it is speced more like around an $1100 LBS bike not a $1900 one.
