But just because a $600 bike fit YOUR budget and riding needs doesn't make it a benchmark for which all new riders must adhere to

ara himself suggested the bike based on HIS budget, and it isn't really expensive for a good bike.......

congrats lowdog...getting a new bike for me is just as exciting as getting a new car....enjoy!
lol my bike was only 400 but your right some riders might start out a lot more capable than i did. but its very true that you can have funs on a cheap assed bike.

ya... it had just been deemed "open" but then i got bogged down in mud for 1/3 of the trail. i dont like riding muddy trails because it fvcks them up when they dry, as this one got screwed because someone didnt check all of it before opening it.
