Re: Mountain Bikes Brands

There are many specialized mountains like Trek, Kona, Giant, GT, Rocky Mountain but I really likes Fuji much more for Mountain Bikes Brands.

I had some price concerns and a very limited choice in the local shop, and I wanted a brand new one, so I went for the best brand with the best price, end up buying a nice Raleigh, mojave 2.0 Now I am very happy with it and probably I need some years before I need to improve components. I just wanted to comment about my new bike!

Re: Mountain Bikes Brands

I think it's blatantly obvious that I'm a GT fan. I owned a GT Pro Performer as a kid, and now as an adult I own a GT mountain bike, and so does my wife. Yes, admittedly, I am a GT "fanboy."

A lot of people will tell you now that GT is owned by Dorel Industries (Pacific Cycles) that their quality has taken a fall, but I will tell you from experience that I absolutely disagree. My wife and I have owned our Avalanches (1.0 and 3.0) for 2.5 months now, and they have taken an absolute beating over some pretty rough terrain. They have not even sweated. They are very good bikes.

Other brands owned by Dorel Industries (Pacific Cycles) are Cannondale, Schwinn, and Mongoose. All of these other brands make some very competent bicycles. No, I'm not talking about the Schwinns and Mongooses you find in Walmart, either. Those bikes aren't even mentioned on the manufacturer sites.

I will give you a list of mountain bike manufacturers I know of. As for what's best and what's worse, I can't tell you that, and it's doubtful anyone here as owned or ridden all of them and can make that decision, either.

GT
Cannondale
Mongoose
Diamondback
Schwinn
Jamis
Kona
Trek
Fuji
Giant
Specialized

IMO, the Giant XTC1 is one of the best values on the market, coming in at around $900-$1000. It is light by mountain bike standards, and the componentry is comparable with the best in its class. Had I been able to find a Giant XTC1, I may well have gotten it over my GT Avalanche. Be that as it may, I'm very happy with my purchase.

Re: Mountain Bikes Brands

I have a cheap Diamondback Sorrento that I have put through absolute hell and it keeps beggin' for more.

As far as top brands go, I have heard the best reviews on:

Trek
Kona
Yeti
Cannondale
GT

(Incidentally, I have an GT TT bike and I can tell you that it is awesome.GT Fanatic is on to something because they have made some great bikes. I'm particularly fond of the late 90's "triple-triangle" frames.)

There was a nice article on an Ellsworth in one of the latest issues of Mountain Bike Action, I think it was...

Let's take it a little slower.  Before you pick your bike... You need to find out what size bike you need.  You don't want a bike to big.  You will come off your pedals at a fast speed and crack your cods on the top of the frame.   I have a Giant.  It has all shimsno xt components with rapid fire shifting.  You can find an older one for around $3-400.  It's all you need to start.  If you like it, and it's something you want to get further into.... You can upgrade or custom build one to suit your type of riding.   Hope this helps.
