And now, something for our younger generation. It is important to get a good taste of the cycling world when starting. This Nashbar AT1 Mountain Bike review explains it. It has top-notch quality for the price and competes with $500+ brand bikes. Not all bike in this price range have Shimano components, but it does! This Bike’s older brother won it’s place on our Best MTBs under $500!
For kids, it offers riding-pleasure right up to teen-age. Customer reviews say that:
This is the second bike we bought for our teenagers after three years. The first bike still runs great after years of abuse.
The bicycle build is both solid and comfortable with no fancy add-ons. It offers the best value and quality for the price without brand-name surcharge
Change the pedals ASAP, because plastic pedals won’t last for a long time! But please keep in mind, that it’s impossible to get a very good bike with $300. If you want to get better bike, you can also upgrade this bike with new shock etc. But for a beginning, this bike performs well and if you care for it, it can last for long years.
