What mountain bike would you buy?
I promised the wife I'd buy her a mountain bike for Christmas. Yes I know Christmas is done and gone, but realistically she won't ride the bike for months anyway so who cares.
I also told her if she gets one then I get one too, so looking for two mountain bikes. Anyway, I know absolutely nothing about mountain bikes. Based on some emails here and there word is she'd be best with a 27.5, not sure about me. Based on her likely use, which is nothing hardcore, a hardtail is almost certainly the best option. For me I'm indifferent between a hardtail and full suspension. From the few feelers out there I might have a connection on a Scott or Felt, but certainly open to other options. Connection meaning I can get a little bit of a price break. Probably spending between 2K each, probably a little more for for full suspension. Any thoughts?
Living life in pursuit of triathlon greatness and not pissing off my wife. Also trying to understand Dark Mark and why he's left New York yet again, but this time for Oklahoma. At least it's not Florida.
