A lot of variables goes into that decision. Buy quality up front so not to be throwing away money on something that breaks easily (i.e department store level bikes). Stop by the local trails and see what others are riding and talk with them. Truly Spokin has a shop in Milton- stop by there and talk with Mark. Good luck and cya on the trails!

a lot has changed in 15 years... you will be pleasantly surprised. back then, everyone was riding 26 inch wheels...29 inch is now quite common but 27.5" inch is coming on the scene strong. pros & cons for each. your height & riding style may be the determining factor & the shops can help you with that.. with $2K you should have a lot of good options. the ubiquitous bike shop brands have not changed - trek, specialized, giant.
