hi, i'm looking right now to buy a solid bike because at first my weight is 260 pounds or 117 kg and the street of my city are really bad. I have between 700$ and 1 000$ to put on the bike. With those needs, i went to some shop to figure what are the option. Plus, i dont really to jump or trails but i need something solid. I am around 6 feet tall so i think medium size should do it.
the first one i saw was the raleigh talus 29. here are the spec 2012 Raleigh Talus 29 | Mountain Bike Components and Specs
. The dealer didn't have the price because he just receive it today. But, on the internet i saw it should be around 900$
the second one is the rocky mountain vapor 2013. Bikes | Mountain | XC Hardtail | Vapor. the price is 700$.
the third one is the opus flux wich is build by a compagny of my city. the spec are Opus » Bikes » Flux. the price of this one is 825$
Also, i don't really care about the weight if it can make me save some money. I just care about the quality of the product and if it will be solid enough to keep it for many years without destroying it. Thanks
