So here is the deal. I just recently moved to Avon, CO (near Vail and Beaver Creek) and hear that there is outstanding mountain biking up here. I want to get into the sport but really know nothing about it at all. I am pretty athletic so I envision myself picking up the sport quickly or at least riding enough until I pick up the sport.
But here is my dilema I have no clue what I am looking at or looking for. I certainly don't want to get a bike that I am going to use for a season then need to replace because it no longer fits what I am riding but at the same time I'm not looking to spend a ton of money on a top of the line bike because I just don't feel that I will be able to use the bike to its full extent.
So I decided that I would like to spend between $600-$1000 on a bike. But I have no clue what I am looking at in bikes. I'm 5' 10.5", 155 lbs so I'm not sure if I need a large or medium frame. Do I want to go with full suspension or a hard tail? What is a good company to go with (Should I go with a large producer Trek, Specialized or a smaller company to get the best value)? Really I just need good suggestions on bikes so that I can get a feel for what is a good pick.
Any advice is helpful.
