I ride to work a few days a week and trails on the weekends. Interested in getting into more local single track riding. There are maybe limited ST trails that would require a FS bike.
At this point I am in the air. I am looking for something I will be happy with, but yet having decent components to upgrade or swap to a new frame.
Right now interested in a Trek 6000 or a Giant XTC2. All of the components work for me with these 2 bikes, both are around $650 and come with Dart3 front shocks and mechanical 6" brakes.
I also have full suspension on my mind as the option to ride more aggressive trails is appealing. I found a Trek Fuel ex5 for $879 at my LBS today, but I am not sure its what I should be looking for in a FS bike.. I know its an entry level FS and I dont want to get stuck.
Front Suspension: RockShox Tora 289 U-Turn
Rear Shock: RockShox BAR 1.1
Or should I settle on a 6000 or XTC2 with the Rock Shock Dart3 and keep my eyes out for a full suspension frame to swap to later?
