    HardTail under 700$

    Hello guys,

    I'm new here and I hope I am not opening this thread in wrong place.
    I'm looking for hard-tail bike under 700$, I like this bike very much
    Mountain Bikes | Road Bikes | MTB | Bike Finance | All Terrain
    but I want it to be delivered in San Francisco, CA, and it costs 99 euros to ship + customs duty (which I have no idea how much I have to pay) and I guess it isn't best choice.
    Can you suggest my any hard-tail bike ?

    p.s. can you give me links of online shops ?

    Thank you.

    Try jensonusa or performance bike, or maybe Nashar. I would think you could find something nice without the large shipping price. All of those are free shipping today. Also Nashbar and performance are giving $20 off.

    Before I scooped up my used bike last week, I was debating on picking up a Kona Fire Mountain for $510 from Smitty's Cyclery Cincinnati OH Bianchi-Kona-Giro-Bell-Blackburn-Speedplay-Easton

    They're a local shop here in Cincinnati...so not sure what shipping would be to you...but they've got a decent holiday sale going on

    I'm kinda a newb myself so I don't trust myself to make a suggestion sorry. I just know where I would look of I was looking. I myself am taking the building route which is coming out to be an awesome build but much more money then my original budget planned for. Just check the specs and see what looks good to you. Check reviews. Then make sure you get the right size and you should be good to go. Maybe someone else can chime in and give you some ideas. Good luck

    '12 Kona Fire Mountain costs 730$ there, I guess there is not sale for this item anymore
    I would like something like cube attention (most of parts made by shimano)

    It's on sale. Their website doesn't list the sale price. Call them, ask for Curt. Tell them the guy that bought the Kona AA they built sent you.

    It's 30% off if I'm not mistaken. I was literally going to buy one a week ago.

    Right of the photo is written this :
    This item is not permitted to be shipped, however it can be purchased online and picked up at your convenience.

    That's why I said to call. There's a chance they could ship it to you and you assemble it.

    I got a motobecane 450HT. Was $320 at BikesDirect. You can upgrade the parts, such as the disk brakes and shock for another $250-$300.

    teh best bang/buck you could do is a used bike. I've seen fox equipped hardtail with x9/xt for that price 2-4 years old.

    I would definately agree with you.

    Seems like used bike you can save anywhere btwn 30-70% off.

    My only concern is you'll lose the warranty and you won't get the free tune ups usually given when bt new for so many months.

    Could I trust a LBS to give an accurate inspection of it b/c I have no experience with bikes and wouldnt know what to look for.

    Thanks,

    PS obviously the savings alone if enough would make up for the lack of warranty if inspected throroughly.
