I am about to buy my first mountain bike. I first went to a bike shop down the street from me and he recommended a Specialized Rockhopper. From what I read, this is a great place to start and he was wonderful but the bike was a bit out of my price range. I went to Dick's and looked at the Diamondback Response XE and really liked it and it was more where I am willing to pay for a bike. I am hoping to enjoy the hobby and stick with it and upgrade down the road but I would like to get opinions on whether this is a good starter bike. I just can't see paying $1,000 upfront in case it does not go well. What are your thoughts on this bike? Is it a good place to start?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
