I am looking for a new mountain bike for spring. I am looking for something under $500.00...... So far that seems to limit me to low end bikes. The best deal I have found is a Giant Boulder SE 2010 model with disk brakes for $360.00.
I do a lot of riding with my kids and that is on our local rail trail. I also do a fair bit of riding on the local off road trails. Nothing to crazy, but I need failrly aggressive tires.
