Alright, you may remember me posting two weeks ago that I bought my first bike (09 Giant Boulder) since grade school. Well, I have been riding the trails near my house 5 days a week and have absolutely fallen in love with it. I have always grown up hiking and hunting and love the outdoors, but riding a bike through nature is awesome. It is like hiking, but with speed. I have already talked my wife into letting me spend 2K on a new bike in a year (I am in the military and move a lot, I want to get a full year of riding these trails in on a new bike before I move somewhere else - probably to San Diego). Also, with me being in the military, I have no clue what type of trails I will ride when I get to my next duty station so I want a bike that can do it all. I think my true love is for single track though. I have been curious as to the different bikes that are in the 1.8-2k range and can't help but want a Giant again. I have never ridden anything else, but I love the way that my current bike fits and I haven't cared too much for the others that I have seen online, and I really don't want a Specialized because I feel that they are overpriced due to their popularity. Is it just me being so new and not knowing the components or does Giant seem to be the best bang for the buck brand? I have been looking at Giant, Cannondale, Treck, Gary Fisher, Merida, and Fuji.
Anyways, I love my boulder and I know I have to wait a year for a new bike, but it is still fun to look.
