Reply To: Return to Mtn Biking and getting teenagers going


I have always been a strong believer in starting out on a flat pedal hardtail to learn how to actually ride properly. That being said they are also the cheaper end of the mountain bike spectrum. I see no reason to spend more than 1100 dollars, but i would also not recommend spending less than 600 or 700. Singletracks themselves puts out some very helpful lists of starter and budget mountain bikes check out their articles!
