hello everyone, im new to the forums. I've been looking around for a new mountain bike for an entry level cyclist, I have about 1500 - 3000 rand to spend. Any suggestions? A few friends of mine have suggested these the Giant upland SE, the marin bolinas ridge and the GT avalanche 2.0. Are those good choices? and i need a good online site to buy the bike from as the local bike store in Richardsbay is a rip off!

thanks :)

Silverback, Nomad or Serfas.

All excellent value for money!

http://www.silverbacklab.com/mountain.htm ... Check the 'Mountain Sports' and possibly one or two of the 'Mountain Performance'
