    Need Help Choosing a Hardtail

    Hey guys I need some help picking out a decent hardtail bike. I'm in college and Im looking for a nice bike that I can enjoy riding on the trails but also not have to worry about it getting stolen on campus (which likely wont happen). My commute to campus is about 1 mile. I have been searching Craigslist all summer for deals but not much has caught my eye or price range. I'm trying to spend around $300 or less, yes I know that probably seems impossible but I'd like to try and keep it around there. I'd really like a bike that I can throw upgraded parts on if I want to. A nicer bike will come after college. I'll take all the advice and help you guys suggest.

    I reccomend the iron Horse Maverick 3.0 Disc.They have it on Amazon for less than 300$ and it also has discs.Dunno how much is shipping but it looks like a good buy.

    Here's the link-

    I hope that helps!

    I really like this one, but the free shipping only applies to orders $499+
