    Need Advice! Purchasing a New Bike

    I'm just getting back into Mountain Biking after several years away. I have rode most of the summer on my 10yr old K2 FS. I'm wanting to enter some local races and defiantly need an upgrade. I'm looking to spend around $2,500. What do you think is the best FS bike in that range? I've looked at the Trek EX7 and a Yeti 575, there are so many options I'm really confused. Thanks in advance for the help.

    What type of racing? Just as important what type of terrain/trail surfaces when not racing? Any relevant height/weight factors?

    On the money side, its good you're willing to bring enough to play with to the table, especially since end-of-the-year blowouts are coming.

    Racing will just be average XC racing, not very hilly, lots of single track medium difficulty. I'm 5'11'' and weight 180. Thanks.

    Yep, you're right. There's a lot of choices in that category. I'm more AM/some FR so this really isn't my area. You might want to post a thread over in General too if you don't get enough feedback here. Good luck!
