Hi elkslayer4x5, the Rockhopper and Stumpjumper are good standard mountain bikes, from a great company Specialized, I wish I had one. I ride nothing but a mountain bike in the city, smooths out bumps and rough pavement, the wide tires rides over most cracks and such and the super low gearing will climb any hill here in SF.

And people get burned out or find out bicycling ain't all it's cracked up to be. Wife bought a mountain bike at a back yard sale. Knobby tires, 18 speed and for $10.00. Yes, $10. I liked it. Came home one day and she gave it to the dumb brother of hers. Told me to just wait and she'd get me another. So she picked another, $10. It's in the garage now.
