Im looking to get into mtb, but I dont know what bike/model/brand to get, I have the specifications I want, but dont know any bikes that have these specifications. Here are my specifications I want on my bike. Hardtail Includes disk brakes Has any amount of gears, I honestly dont care how many, just as long it has 3. At or under $600 And its a trail bike! Thank you! -Dan
Just my preference but I would recommend being specific on the type of forks you want. Air compression suspension forks are top of the line but spring suspension forks aren't too shabby either, and are what you're more likely to find in your price range. I got a scott aspect last year with Suntour SRX spring forks that have 100 mm of travel and do just fine for me so far and it was within your price range as well. That being said, if I'd have known how useful a seat dropper switch was last year, I would've saved up a little more and spent the extra $300 for the bike that had it (it also had air suspension forks). But like I said, that's just me knowing how much I like to hit jumps now. You'll figure out what you like and then start looking for another bike like a lunatic sooner than you like if you're like me!
