Alright guys, I'm just getting back into riding after a long time off and want some recommendations on where to start looking. I mostly rode bmx before so I'm a little more comfortable on a smaller lighter bike. I tend to be relatively gentle/smooth (I rode race wheels, forks, cranks on my street bike without issues) so I'm thinking a tougher XC or light AM would be plenty for the trails around here. Like I said I want something light that handles small. My dad has a Santa cruz blur xc, which I feel pretty good on. Something that handles similarly but hardtail and preferably under $800 would be perfect. Ive been checking out the offerings from bikesdirect, but a bike with XT components and juicy 3's for $700 seems a little too good to be true. What's the catch lol? I'm also keeping my eye out on craigslist; anywhere else I should be looking?
