I wish I could drop 4 grand on a bike, but it's just not realistic (newborn twins at home). I was hoping to spend under 2K. Actually more like 1500 I love the idea of a trail bike with plenty of travel (love going down) that still climbs well (hate that part).
So what bikes are a good value but still ride well? I live in Nashua, but was thinking of checking out a variety of bike shops.
I'd love your suggestions on a solid full-squish rig for around 1500 and any recommendations on a good shop in the southern NH or Greater Boston area would also be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.
