Im not trying to go crazy expensive. I wanna make sure I like it before I put alot of money in to it. I have most the accessories from racing BMX. And I work at a bike shop so I can get a decent bike. They sell jamis and i was looking at the Komodo or the durango as a starter bike. Any opinions?
I started out racing BMX and cross country was like a giant BMX track for me. Heck, I'm even going back to my roots by converting to single speed with a freewheel. ; )
It's my humble opinion that you'll want a hardtail in the ~$600 range as this gives you decent components without breaking the bank. Heck, if you work at a shop you should be able to borrow or ride a demo bike to see what you like. I think most of the entry/mid level bikes are pretty darn similiar component and geometry wise.
