Here is a great post from our very own coach Brie. We call her the “Gear Guru” because she knows her stuff. If you are in the market for your first mountain bike, going the used bike route can be the best option to really learn what works for you without the expense of investing in a new bike with all the “bells and whistles”.
It can be intimidating walking into a bike store, only be to shown $5000 bikes. Seriously….you could buy a car for that! Good news, you don’t NEED to purchase a $5K bike to get a good bike and get out and enjoy some trails.
