    Which Bike Would Be Good For Me

    like i've said in a few other threads, i'm new to mountain biking, and am acustomed to BMX dirt jumping and such, I'm looking to get more into the mountain biek side of things. Basically looking to ride everything. These are a few i'm looking at

    Giant Iguana
    Giant STP 2
    SPecialized Hardrock Comp Disc
    Specialized Rockhopper

    I'm leaning towards the Specialized Rockhopper and Giant STP 2

    If you have any other bikes around $600 that you think might interest me or have any thoughts and comments on the bikes i've mentioned, it would be much appreciated, thank you.

    If your riding everything you might want to go with a freeride bike. But they're far out of your price range.

    Get the STP or the Specialized P.3 or a Kona Shred/Scab/Whatever their base model DJ is.
