I am going to start mountain biking but don't know what bike to get. Want to ride fast downhill trails but don't know where any are. There are two trails that I know about: Southridge, and Box Springs. If you know of any trails that would be similar to Big Bear with minimum amounts of pedaling please let me know. I want to go ride Southridge this weekend if I can rent a bike and someone will go with me. Want to see what the terrain is like for myself before I totally commit. I was looking at a couple bikes, the Stinky Dee-Lux, Banshee Scream, Giant's Faith 2, and possibly Scott's Nitrous 20 or Nitrous SL22. I you think one or more of these just won't work please let me know. I want to spend around $2000. I can get the bikes at cost. Thank you for your input.
