Look around where you live , what brands are in the bike shops, for you to test ride? ..
experience is better than on-line opinions , and the shop people will be there to help you after the sale..
seems a personal shopper is needed to check Craig's list for people in your situation
and then go with you to see if the used bike is in good condition.
might be a new service job to hire.
you can get a decent hard tail new in a shop for $700 .. time to walk into a few shops .
