    Hello guys my name is Gustavo Woltmann and I am an assistant working in a publishers office for over a decade already. Just want to ask the experts around here on what brand of mountain bike is best for a beginner?

    Any used bike less than three years old that fits you well. Ride it for a year or three, after which you'll have a better idea what you want.

    Providing a price range will allow others to provide better recommendations.

    I started off with a Trek Fuel hartail, figured out I wanted a full suspension so I got a Gravity FSX. I got the Trek for free via storage auctions with my dad and bought the FSX from a guy for 200 bucks. So I spent about 300 bucks total my first 8 years of riding, just got a Santa Cruz Bronson this year and it's exactly what I've always wanted! You can find really good bikes for cheap, just start out with a hardtail. Diamondback and Trek make excellent hardtails.
