Just watch out for the base model, It comes with very low line sx components. I already upgraded my group set to gx. The suspension and rest of the bike is great though, and you can't beat it for the price!
Dang. Our bike trail is great! Now to add features. Thinking about it, the first section doesn't need features except for the berm. Then there's the technical climb. Sketchy. Nearly been able to finish it but not quite. Its really soft soil there so it can get slippery. And then you have the downhill run which I will soon be adding features to.
13mi and 1400ft of elevation change at Andrews trail! A little slickery but overall great ride. They're starting to add more trail yet so the milage just keeps on going up! Here are some pictures of the place. In the summer it looks like a jungle!
I'm personally right in the middle. My bike is between MTB and a hybrid (basically it is a hybrid but with way more MTB dna than your average hybrid). I do some mountain stuff every once in a while but most of my biking is on roads, that's why I asked the question.
I had a Specialized MTB with a Rock-Shox fork, and a 1st gen TREK full suspension. Should have kept the specialized. The Trek was virtually unrideable since the suspension would wind up as you pedaled. It was like riding a mechanical bull. Closest I have now is CX for gravel grinding.
