Becoming a Mountain Biker
3. How much to spend on a bike?
The price range for mountain bikes is quite huge -
from modest couple of hundred US dollars (Euros) to a
couple of thousand dollars (Euros) and more. Well, as

If you expect me to tell you how much you should
spend, then I've got to disappoint you. It is simply not
possible, since 200 US dollars (Euros) can be quite an
investment for someone and on the other hand 1000 US dollars
(Euros) the usual amount for someone else. But I can
give you a hint - for a serious beginner DEORE level of Shimano components would be appropriate.
have to pay attention whether the bike is equipped with
a complete set of DEORE components or just with the rear derailleur.
