Investing in a well-made mountain bike is like upgrading to a nice pair of leather boots, you're going to immediately notice a major improvement in comfort and durability. Now, you can go all-out and buy a high-end mountain bike (like this Pivot), or you can go with a mid-tier option that's going to still give you premium performance while saving a couple bucks (the only difference is you'll forgo some luxury features).

Unless you're a diehard rider, then the mid-tier option is going to be your best bet (think a few thousand dollars). Going with this option will get you the highest return in performance for the money you pay. What's even better is when mid-tier mountain bike models are on sale. Take for example this rider-approved Ibis Ripley GX Eagle Air (25% off). Right now you can score this dual-suspension bad boy for well over $900 off thanks to Backcountry's Summer Sale!
