    Looking for a new bike

    I have been in the market looking at new/used bike. I recently had a 29er hardtail Marian. I have been looking in newer models and older model hard tails recently i came across a deal on a 2011 ROCKY MOUNTAIN ALTITUDE 29 SE in pretty good condition. I had not thought about the full suspension route but this bike seems to have caught my eye. Does anyone have any info on this bike or if it would even be worth pursuing? I know it 7-8 years old but geo seems t be similar to current styles.

    What's your budget? How much is that Rocky Mountain? I suspect that you can get something much better for not much more as the geo on that isn't too similar to bikes that started being made 4-5 years later.

    I am trying to stay under $1,000, the rocky mountain is going for $600. My ridding style is fairly flat cross country trails, Use to ride some motocross so will be pushing whatever I get as I get more comfortable.

    With your terrain I'd try and stay under 25 lbs. And that's likely a hardtail.
    You won't use that suspension so why lug it around. Probably 35 lbs.

    Worth an offer. Even if a little over budget.

    Aside from the weight of the bike, just figured could be a good bike still. Seems to have decent components.
