Wow! Been years since I've been here as a regular.
Looking to buy a new bicycle for my daughter. She would like to get into mountain bike racing with Dad. So I have been looking for a good bicycle for her to race with. What I am looking at, because of its light weight and excellent (for a kids bike) components, is the 2006 Hotrock A1 FS 24 21-Speed Girls. Anyone able to suggest where I might do better? Unfortunately metal prices have driven costs up.
Out the door it's pricing at $372.00 I haven't found a better price (shipping) online anywhere and the bike shops won't budge on price due to increased prices of metal.
