Haro Backtrail X24

Thinking about buying one of these used. Mainly for thrashing around town or light dirt trails. Would this be the bike to get, or your 'normal' mountain bike hardtail like a Schwinn Moab, or a dual suspension bike like Mongoose Sommet or Kona Kikapu?

Seems like a pretty affordable toy to me. I checked the online reviews, and other than the fool that expects a sub $300 bike to take lots of abuse, it seemed like a good deal. It's cousin to my Haro Group 1 SX 24, which I'm quite happy with. I think if you get it, you'll have a good time thrashing on it.
