    Help for new bike

    Hi, this summer i need to decide what kind of bike i want to get, i like to do cross country and free riding. i was looking into the kona coiler or the Haro X3. Just seeing what other people think about those bikes and if there is anything else that i should look at.

    Usually, I try to recommend a good shop in your area, that you trust. Go from there. Try as many bikes as you can. You can't go wrong with either of those bikes.

    the AC1 is not the best design because the curve in the seat tube makes the tube weaker and will not hold up to as much abuse as you would expect from it. id say go with the kona. or even look into a norco ive got an 03 atomik and rode it yesturday, and it rides much much better then my xc bike on climbs... i dont know why though...
