A quick 20 during my lunch break. I just love the smell off Autumn. Stayed mostly on the groomed trail system.

Enjoy the pics.

Sweet. I wish we had a groomed gravel trail like that. Our paved trail has a gravel section at the very end, but it's only a half mile or so long.

Hi y’all,

Is there a possibility of getting a ok mountain bike for under $800-$1000?

Mostly for just cruising local bike trails and exercise. Don’t need anything fancy. Or would y’all recommend opening the wallet little bit more?

Oh for sure.

First decision is, are you going to go Hard Tail or Full Suspension - after that trawl some websites.

I always point my friends to these two websites:

https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/buy...-under-1000-2/
or
https://www.mbr.co.uk/buyers_guide/b...er-1000-394580

You could also look for some of those second hand or check the next tier up and do the same, see if you can get a bargain.

I definitely need to learn the basics between hard tail or full suspension. And second hand is a great idea! Thank you for the info!

Howzit, all.

Could use some input from everyone. About to pull the trigger on my first DS bike. Currently riding a 2020 Marlin 7 but am pushing that bike substantially out of it's element.

Ride mostly blue trails. Moderate climbs and decents. Very rocky and root filled terrain though. I am not a top athletic type guy, so I don't push it very hard and rarely get both wheels off the ground by more than a foot or so.

Trying to balance keeping my budget reasonable and also getting decent spec.

This is my top choice right now and plan is to pick it up Thursday if everything checks out.

Thoughts?

There’s a comfort level in buying Trek because they’re one of the biggest bike companies around with arguably the most extensive dealer/distribution network in the USA. Components are pretty high-end for the money too.

The only thing you should look into, if you haven’t already, is whether it’s worth it to you to spend more money on a CF frame bike.

Recently moved to Phoenix from the PNW - that was a change of scenery to say the least. Making do here in Mars…

First bike is a Canyon Torque Carbon mullet setup
Second is a Polygon Siskiyou N9 29er

Both are highly modded and pretty well spec’d for me.

Thanks! I currently run 27.5" - I am a pretty short guy, so it helps get the standover height down for me. On the small frame, though, Trek offers both 27.5 and 29. Inventory is so insane right now, I will really just take either - which ever they can get. Wait right now to get what you want on order is mid 2023!

Due to the insane supply issue right now on bikes, black friday won't have any impact. It's hard enough to simply find a bike - no one is giving any discounts at all.

Yeah - I've thought about it. Really though - main benefit of carbon is weight - and I am at least 20lbs overweight, so I can drop a few pounds off the rider for free vs paying for it on the bike, lol.

Yeah - I'm not opposed to other brands - but I like Trek and there is a Trek factory store in my local town that is awesome and where I bought my last bike and my daughter's bike - so I have a good relationship with them and want to stay with the brand.

Of course, now the weather takes a turn and it's below freezing all the rest of the week.

Trying to determine if I should take it with me to Canada next month or not. Not sure if weather will be too cold. I ride down to about 0c, so long as it's sunny.
