Looking to buy a trai bike so I can stop bashing the race wheels when I go to trails. Im looking to spend about 300-500. I'm 5'9" so I'm thinking a 21" Tt just need to know what are some solid brands and what models are decent bikes.

Are you talking about a triathlon road bike? Those things cost $1500+...

Eastern and Haro are the first two that comes to mind for a trail bike.

I am 45 and could be considered Old School. This is my ride, 2009 SE Quad Pro. I upgraded the bars to Sunday Tall T's and have not had one issue with anything I throw at it. Just under $400. It has a 20.5 TT and is great for me I'm 5"-11". Check your local SE Dealer out!
