Anybody know about these bikes? Any good? I can't afford a good name brand bike. Looking for a good basic bike for cross country mtn biking, nothing super technical but love a tight twisty course. bikesdirect.com sells the Gravity FSX 1.0 for $330, including free shipping. I have never heard of the them or the bike, but the specs look acceptable for my needs (and budget!). I've got a cheap Schwinn now so almost anything would be a step up. Weight isn't a big issue (they don't list it), I'm sure it will be less then my current one. I THINK I really want disk brakes. Is there any reason not to get them? These are mechanical, not hydraulic.
