    Good Choice?

    I'm looking to get into mountain biking but want a bike I can ride to school (3 miles one way) too. I'm looking to stay under $400. I went to a shop and test rode a Kona Fire Mountain and a Scott Voltage YZ 4.

    I was really impressed with the Kona, although I don't know a whole lot about bikes.
    The chain came off the Scott on the first attempt to ride it. It rode good though on the second try.

    The guy said I could get the Kona for $385 which seems like a good price (plus free servicing and 10% off accessories for a year).
    The Scott was $315 with the same deal.

    I checked two other shops and got no help at one and the other had a very limited selection.

    The Kona Fire Mountain seems to be the best deal.
    Is the Kona Fire Mountain a good bike for a beginner and is that a good price?

    Thanks!

    Kona is a great brand, and if you get the Fire mountain it should serve you just fine for the kind of riding you'll be doing
