      I just bought my first bike. I got a 2014 Raleigh Talus 4.0. I am 6 foot and most folks told me to get a 29er. I rode a Trek Marlin 6 and a Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc. They both felt like trying to turn a battleship to me. I found the Raleigh and rode it and what a difference. It feels way moe nimble and quicker to boot. The LBS I got it from has been here 40 years and the owner is retiring and selling to a new owner. He has his stuff marked down and I paid $439. I am really happy with the bike and I think I got a great bike for the price for a noob to mtb.

      Congrats kirk! Feels real good to get your first real bike. I also looked at the talon line when I got mt lefty. They were nice. Enjoy the bike!

      It’s really all about what you find comfortable and enjoy riding. If you’re happy with your bike you’ll ride more trails. The more trails you ride the happier you will be. Have fun!
