I’ll cover it more in my Roscoe 7 review that’s coming up, but writing on the North Shore from the perspective of riding the North Shore, there’s only so low-end that works around here as a mountain bike with room for progression, that doesn’t need a lot of parts swaps off the top, and that won’t turn riders off the activity.  I’m sure plenty of other places a sub-$1000 bike with a rigid fork would be significantly better than a single-rate coil sprung all steel unserviceable suspension fork. But I ride a lot, and don’t see many/any folks other than kids trying to ride mountain bike trails on those locally. We’ve added some smoother blues to the trail inventory but the Shore still comes with a fairly steep learning curve/higher basic equipment requirement.
