Best Mountain Bikes Under $1000

Updated on July 27, 2015

Few things in life are free, and one of the things that doesn’t cost a dime is the enjoyment of the great outdoors. It’s free and freeing! Of course, it’s even better to spend some money on sports or hobbies that involve being outside and doing what you love at the same time.

Mountain biking is a very thrilling sport, exercise, and hobby! There’s nothing out there quite like mountain biking to get your adrenaline pumping as you race through wooded areas, across skinny passageways, and alongside steep mountains! If you’ve never experienced the feeling, then be sure to add it to your bucket list because it is one thing that nobody should go without trying at least once.

Why are Mountain Bikes so Expensive?

Most people inadvertently kickstart their hobby of mountain biking with a cheaper mountain bike from a big box store. We all have to start somewhere, right? But what if you’re certain that this is a sport that you want to take on and commit yourself to? You’re going to need some better, more durable gear!

Now $1,000 may seem like a lot of money, but there are many of the best mountain bikes under 1000. They say money can’t buy happiness, but I disagree. Money can buy one awesome mountain bike, which is basically the same thing! So you’re in the market for the best mountain bikes under 1000, here are your contenders!
