I am wanting to get back into riding, and my old 90's GT just isn't going to cut it anymore. I had to relocate for work, and just 1/4 mile down the road from me is the trail head for 15 miles worth of single track alone so needless to say I got the bug to ride it. I haven't rode much single track before though but I think it would be a great way to work on getting in better shape. We also have miles and miles of paved paths, that I thought about using my GT for.
So anyways, I was looking to buy a new bike and I am looking to spend under $1000 since I am not sure how much I am going to like this new adventure. I know that really limits me to a hardtail new, but on our local forum I found a 2009 EX7 for $600. Looks really clean to me, but I am not sure what to look for on these. From reading reviews they say the brakes aren't the best, but heck I have never even had disk brakes before. I am 6'3, 250lbs. What do you guys think?
