^People are quick to say you need disk brakes and suspension and this and that, but I learned on a rigid steel frame mountain bike from the 80's and I think it makes you a much better rider. Once you have exceeded the limits of the bike and understand them more you can decide whether you want to spend more on a full suspension bike or road bike or whatever. I still enjoy that old bike because it's efficient on the street and dirt and always a fun challenge.

Look at that subtle jet-black coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh my God, it even has a 6mt.
