    Hey guys in looking into buying my first mountain bike. I will be riding it to school and work and the occasional weekend trail. Where should I start looking?

    You should buy two. A lesser quality one to commute on and a nicer one for your trail stuff. And buy locks for both ;)

    Go check out what your bike shops have. You may find a left over 2013 for a good discount.

    Do what everyone else said. I got my bike half off cause it was last years model. If you search Craigslist you can find some good deals on cheap bikes. I got a 29er single speed steel for around $200. Made for a good commuter.

    id go medium for sure a lot of guys i ride with run larges at 5'10-11"
    unless its a 29er then you might be able to get away with a small, id go med unless you find a really good deal on a small thats a 29er
