I mountain bike with friends ocassionally, borrowing either a Moots or Rodriguez custom from them. Single track, big climbs, some forest roads. So I have a 3 wk trip this summer across the Pyrenees from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic. On dirt roads, 3k ft of climbing every day for 3 wks. I have a couple road bikes but no mtn bike. So I'm looking for suggestions. I'm in Seattle and have been looking at some used bike shops. I'd prefer a hard tail, something light weight. We're going to carry small packs and stay in villages. So - suggestions on bikes and where to buy. Thanks for any help.
