So Im new to mtb. I ride dirtbikes and was looking for a fun way to work on cardio... Now im hooked. I was going to buy another dirtbike but Im strongly considering a mtb instead. I'll probably have right around 1500 to spend maybe a little more. I'm currently on the road for work and wont be making any big purchases untill fall. Im wanting some time to chew over my options before making a decision.
I will be riding some dirt/mountain roads, mostly single track and downhill. Ill be out in arizona, so lots of rocks. I want to be able to do both up and down hill.
Im riding a trek 3 series 16" which is what lit the fire, but i want something better to get a bit more serious about it. Ive riddin my friends gt backwoods, with no suspension and it was roughly 23" which was way too big for me, i liked the feel of the 16" alot more.
Im 24 about 5'9" 165lbs.
I would really like full suspension.
I don't have much expirence so i dont have much preferance as to a brand much less a specific frame. I am open to buying online or at a local shop. Ive considered used but i am slightly sketched on gettin someones beatdown crap with out realizing it.
Im open to any and all suggestions as it is just more for me to read while im in my hotel for work. If more info from me is needed ill gladly spill my guts lol. thanks guys
