Hello, MacRumors mountain bikers. I have wanted a bike for a long, long time, and I think that I'm actually ready to fulfill that need/want and reward myself with a new mountain bike. I've been to a few of the cyclery shops in the area, and I've narrowed my choices down to a few that are in my price range. I'm hoping for some feedback/opinions/thoughts about these bikes, other comparable bikes you think I should look into, and the manufacturers in general. I don't know a whole lot about mountain bikes, but have learned a bit in the past week or so, and am anxious to get started. The bikes I'm looking at are the Kona Blast, the Giant Yukon, and (I believe) the Specialized Hardrock Pro Disc. My budget is about $800 US or so, which would include any accessories I would need to buy (helmet, water bottle cage, etc.). Thoughts?
