Forget that nonsense about a $2000+ bike to start with.  You don’t know what you want so how can you make a good decision on a $3000 bike?

Spend $400 on a craigslist hardtail.  Disc brakes, the right size.  Get a helmet, duh.

Find the easiest unpaved trail you can.  Have fun.  goof around.  Ride with other people.  In 6 months if you love it then you can start trying your friend’s bikes.  Get to a demo day early and try some dream bikes.  Then you’ll know what you want and how to use it.
